The Ferrari Driver Academy (FDA) – Asia Pacific and Oceania regional selection program is back for 2022! Held on 25-28 September at Sepang International Circuit, Malaysia, drivers aged 14-17 are invited to apply for the selection program.

The best 24 applicants will be selected to attend this academy.

The first two days of the event will include:

  • Around three hours of track time and testing in Formula 4 cars
  • Advice and training from experienced race engineers
  • Data analysis training
  • Media training
  • Fitness training
  • Nutrition and psychology workshops.
  • Drivers will be put to the ultimate test with six finalists heading into the final shoot out on the final day.

Two selected drivers will qualify to compete against drivers from other regional FDA scouting partners from around the world at the FDA Scouting World Finals in Italy. The winning driver from the various world’s zones will then potentially be offered a place in the Academy.

For those looking at a pathway into Formula One, the Academy is well renowned for promoting young talent. Charles Leclerc and Mick Schumacher being two graduates currently on the 2022 Formula One grid.

All interested participants are invited to attend an information webinar on Tuesday 7 June at 9:30pm NZT.
