MP Motorsport lock in F1 Academy line-up with Emely de Heus


MP Motorsport have become the third team to complete their line-up for the inaugural F1 Academy season, announcing that Dutch racer Emely de Heus will be racing alongside Amna and Hamda Al Qubaisi.

Twenty-year-old De Heus is already a well-known face to the Dutch team, having made her single-seater debut with them in 2021. Competing in Spanish Formula 4, she went on to claim the Female Trophy that same year. 

From there, De Heus joined W Series last year and earned herself a best result of 10th in the opening round in Miami. Ahead of her F1 Academy debut, she got reacquainted with MP over the winter, driving for them in the UAE Championship.

“It feels great to be back with MP, they are like a second home to me”, said De Heus.

“I had a wonderful time with MP back in 2021, and with the added experience that I gained with them I look forward to putting that to good use in my first season in F1 Academy. I can’t wait to get started for the first round at the Red Bull Ring in April and will especially enjoy racing in front of my home crowd at Zandvoort in June.” 

MP Team Principal Sander Dorsman added: “I’m delighted to welcome Emely back into the MP fold. She proved to be a great asset in 2021, and I have no doubt that she will feature strongly in F1 Academy’s first year of action.

“With five of the leading teams on the single-seater ladder to Formula 1 supporting F1 Academy, the future is looking bright for the series, and Emely will be a well-deserved part of that.”
