Matilde Ferreira and Mariana Machado are the Portuguese pilots chosen for The Girls on Track – The Rising Star

This project aims to select from around the world a range of drivers aged between 13 and 15 years old, who will be evaluated and tested in order to select the best one and guarantee in 2021 an entire season in the FIA ​​Formula 4 Championship, integrated in the Formula 1 team structure – Scuderia Ferrari.

Thus, like most Federative entities worldwide, the FPAK applied for four pilots who met the requirements imposed by the FIA. Portugal will be represented by two talented young women, Mariana Machado, the first Portuguese female driver to win a Portuguese Karting Championship, and Matilde Ferreira, who has had success in karting since a young age.

In all, 20 candidates from 16 countries were selected. The program foresees, still during this year, four stages: a ‘Shoot Out’ to meet all the drivers, two ‘Training Camps’, one for Karting and the other for Formula 4, and finally the last ‘Training Camp’ with Ferrari Driver Academy, but in this last phase, only with the four best drivers selected.

After these four phases, the pilot will be chosen who will do the 2021 F4 season.
