Moment of history for Saudi Arabia’s women on Sunday at French Grand Prix circuit. Aseel Al-Hamad drove a Lotus Renault E20 around the French Grand Prix circuit to mark the end of a long driving ban on females in the kingdom.

Aseel, who is a member of the FIA Women in Motorsport Commission, is a keen driver and motor sport enthusiast who took part in a training day on June 5 at the circuit.

“I have loved racing and motorsport from a very young age and to drive a Formula One car goes even beyond my dreams and what I thought was possible.

“It is a genuine honour to drive in front of the crowds at the team’s home race in France.

“I hope doing so on the day when women can drive on the roads in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia shows what you can do if you have the passion and the spirit to dream.”

Aseel is responsible for creation of strategies to promote the education and training of women in motorsport in Saudi Arabia.
