Jason Arthur, CEO of Mission 44, said on the charity’s website: “Together with Formula 1, we can raise awareness and access to career opportunities in motorsport, enabling young people of all backgrounds to succeed.

“Change requires collective action and we are excited to extend our partnership with Formula 1 to increase diversity in motorsport.”

Ellen Jones, Head of ESG at Formula 1, added: “Over the past few years it has been a pleasure to support Mission 44 in its drive to diversify our sport and give students and young people a first taste of the world of Formula 1 and motorsport.

“We look forward to working with Mission 44 in this new capacity and seeing how many doors we can open together to inspire the next generation.”
