Kaspersky announced its sponsorship of Emirati pro racing drivers Amna and Hamda Al Qubaisi in the inaugural season of F1 Academy, a project from the F1 racing series aimed at developing and preparing female drivers for higher levels of competition.

The sponsorship represents Kaspersky's commitment to supporting young professionals who share the company's dedication to excellence. Amna Al Qubaisi notes:

"I’m thankful to Kaspersky for supporting me in the pursuit of my dream. Kaspersky’s commitment to excellence and professionalism resonates well with the values of any professional driver, who has to push the limits of their efficiency on a constant basis to be able to maintain a competitive advantage with other racers."

Kaspersky has been sponsoring Amna and Hamda Al Qubaisi since 2018, and the sisters have been leading the advancement of female achievement in male-dominated motorsport.

Amna, the older of the two, became the first UAE woman to compete in Formula 4 and the first Arab woman to win an F4 race. Hamda, her younger sister, became the first woman to step on an F4 championship podium. In the F1 Academy inaugural season, Amna and Hamda will compete for the Dutch MP Motorsport team, alongside Dutch racing driver Emely de Heus, who previously competed in the all-female single-seater W Series racing championship.

The season comprises five teams, each with three drivers, competing in 21 races over seven racing weekends. The first racing weekend of the season began in Spielberg, Austria, on April 28-29, followed by races in Spain, the Netherlands, Italy, France, and the final race in the United States in late October.
