The first girl at Ferrari

The 16-year-old Dutch girl, Maya Weug, will move to Maranello and in 2021 will take part in all the activities of the academy, she is the first girl to enter Ferrari’s Driver Academy. “When you lower the visor of the helmet we are all equal, you can no longer see the difference between male and female…. Entering this academy is a great feeling. To be the first woman to get in here is historic, I’m happy to be able to prove that it’s possible to do it.”

Maya’s arrival at the same school attended by Mick, Schumi’s son, is a tangible sign of the Scuderia’s commitment to making motorsport increasingly inclusive. Marco Matassa, Director of the Ferrari Driver Academy: “We are very happy to welcome Maya to the Ferrari Driver Academy. We were impressed by her dedication and preparation both from an athletic point of view and in terms of her approach to competition”.

Maya Weug herself states, “I will remember this day forever! I am beside myself with joy at becoming the first Ferrari Driver Academy driver. Winning the final round of the FIA ‘Girls on Track – Rising Stars’ program makes me realize that I have done well in pursuing my dream all these years. I will give it my all.”
