PLEASE NOTE: This episode was recorded before the woman who accused team principal Christian Horner of inappropriate and controlling behaviour was suspended by Red Bull. As the 2024 F1 Academy season gets started, we're joined by Chloe Grant for a preview of the second year of the series and a big announcement about her future! Christian and Betty also chat to Red Bull development drivers Hamda Al Qubaisi and Emely de Heus to get a sense of how things are shaping up ahead of their first race in Jeddah. With F1 Academy's opening race week coinciding with International Women's Day, we also discuss female representation in motorsport with Chloe and Sophie Ogg, F1 Communications Director at McLaren, to hear how things have changed in the paddock during her career.
