Susie Wolff

Susie Wolff is the Managing Director of the F1 Academy. A former professional F1 test driver, Susie Wolff is a motorsport executive and entrepreneur who has spent more than 20 years at the forefront of gender diversity and representation internationally. She is now a renowned business investor and the founder of 'Dare to be Different.'


About Susie Wolff

At the 2014 British Grand Prix, Susie Wolff made history by becoming the first woman to take part in a Formula One race weekend in 22 years by driving for 16-time World Champions Williams Racing.

Despite retiring from professional competition in 2015, Susie continued to be the driving force of change by founding ‘Dare To Be Different’ – a mission to inspire the next generation and increase female participation in all levels of motorsport.

In 2018, Susie took her first steps into management and ownership as Team Principal and shareholder of Venturi Racing in Formula E.

After building the series’ most gender-diverse team, she became the marque’s Chief Executive Officer and secured two vice World Championship titles before leaving in 2022.

Now, as the Managing Director of the all-female driver category, F1 Academy, Susie will continue to inspire the next generation of female talent by creating opportunities and improving accessibility.

For her services and contribution to women in sport, Susie was awarded an MBE in 2017 and received an Honorary Fellowship from the University of Edinburgh and continues to be an inspiration and role model for women across the world.

Susie is a brilliant role model for women making headway in a profession dominated by men.
 She is bilingual in English and German and a firm favourite with sponsors and fans and an accomplished public speaker.
