Jessica Hawkins said that there are lots of different subjects within STEM and it’s all about the students being able to find which one they’re most interested in or they share the biggest passion for. She added that being able to offer this experience is important because the event showcases all the different roles within Formula One. She said there are lots of roles in Formula One that one wouldn’t necessarily know about from the outside.

Pedro de la Rosa said that Formula One will be using sustainable fuel, e-fuels by 2026, which will mark very big progress and reduce carbon footprint. He also said that Formula One is in the process of going to net zero by 2030, which will be the future trend.

The students also participated in a “reaction time” test with the drivers, sometimes even surpassing them. They also experienced driving go-karts on the track themselves.

Aramco and Aston Martin Aramco Formula One Team launched the “Make A Mark” initiative, aiming to attract more youths to promote the diversified development of racing, as well as to unleash the innovative potential of sustainable development and a low-carbon future.
