A mother and daughter passionate about motorsport…
Rachel really struggled to find any information on how to successfully achieve a career in F1, and it was particularly stressful in school when it was time to choose GCSE’s and A Levels. She realised if she was having so much difficulty then others must be too. So she decided to set up Formula Careers to help other students to figure out their own study path into the industry.
Rachel has vowed to make it easier for others to not only see that it’s possible to work in this industry and that it’s not a career that’s ridiculously out of reach, but to show and share the career paths of other people already doing it. She has created a resource that helps people just like her to see a career within Formula 1 is achievable, with tips about important aspects such as building your CV up with targeted work experience, as well as information from those who already work in F1.
Rachel hopes her struggle to find information will now benefit others looking to move into this exciting and fulfilling industry.
Louise could see that Rachel, from an early age, had a real passion for Formula 1. She witnessed Rachel realise she could take the subjects she really enjoyed (maths and science) and make a difference in the industry she loved.
She tried to help Rachel figure out her study path but a lack of information made it tough; there was no easy access to anyone in the industry and the career advisors we spoke to had no idea about the world of motorsport. Frustrated by her own experiences, Louise now spends all her free time growing Formula Careers with Rachel so that together they can share everything they have learned, and inspire others to believe in themselves and follow their dreams too.
