Go full-throttle into the world of motorsport. It is not a man-owned world. Race driver, Maria Teresa De Filippis, was the first woman to compete in a Formula 1 race in 1958. This heritage has been carried on by high-octane females globally. This includes Sauber test driver, Susie Wolff. Another is Jamie Chadwick, 2019 W-Series champion and Williams development driver.
PUMA continues its push for 100% gender equality in all sports and walks of society. As a result, PUMA signed on as a sponsor of the female-only single-seater championship W-Series in 2019. It is the official race gear supplier to promote females in motorsport.
Its partnership with the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team sees a redesigned Speedcat Mid silhouette.
