F1 Academy have announced that American Express will be an official partner of the series for the 2024 season.

This has included F1 Academy being included on the Formula 1 support bill, and the 10 F1 teams running a driver with their liveries on the cars and sponsors that are dedicated to back women in sport, such as Tommy Hilfiger, Charlotte Tilbury and Puma.

American Express had already been involved in the F1 world as an official payments partner in the Americas last year, but now they are joining forces with F1 Academy as an official partner for the series.
