Formula Equal team vying for 2026 entrance into F1
There are four potential entrants into the sport for 2026, and one of them is aiming to have an equal number of gendered people
A team consisting of an equal gender split workforce has unveiled plans to join the Formula 1 for its 2026 season.
The group is among four potential entrants to the sport.
Former BAR boss Craig Pollock is behind it all.
He says the concept has been slowly gaining momentum in the background for years.
“This has been going on for close on four years, the building up of a brand new Formula 1 team, but taking into it our ambition to deliver and build opportunities and pathways for women to get to the very top level inside motorsports,” Pollock told CNN.
Pollock also addressed the idea of seeing a female Formula 1 driver in the seat, but says there’s a a long way to go before that happens.
“I think it’d be absolutely fantastic (to have a female driver),” Pollock explained.
“But the reality is to be able to get into the cockpit of a Formula 1 car, you’ve got to have a certain number of points on your superlicence.
“But to make this very clear, this is not just about women driving Formula 1 cars.
“This is about throughout the team; we want it even up to the board level if we can do that.
“We would like to have a gender equal Formula 1 team going forward,” he concluded.

World Athletics bans transgender women in female category events
Any transgender athlete, who has gone through male puberty, won’t be allowed to compete in female world ranking competitions
World Athletics has banned transgender women from competing in the female category at international events.
Any transgender athlete, who has gone through male puberty, won’t be allowed to compete in female world ranking competitions.
The governing body’s President says the decision was guided by the principle to protect the female category.
“Decisions are always difficult when they involve conflicting needs and rights between different groups, but we continue to take the view that we must maintain fairness for female athletes above all other considerations,” said Lord Coe.
“We will be guided in this by the science around physical performance and male advantage which will inevitably develop over the coming years.
“As more evidence becomes available, we will review our position, but we believe the integrity of the female category in athletics is paramount.”
