Team wins F1 Free Throw, donates winnings to female STEM student charity

Sebastian Vettel and Lance Stroll combined to give Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team victory in the F1 Free Throw challenge, as Formula One launched its partnership with the NBA in Austin.

Lance Stroll: F1 Free Throw Challenge

F1 drivers took part in the challenge alongside NBA legends Dikembe Mutombo, Chris Bosh, Sean Elliott and Fabricio Oberto ahead of the 2021 United States Grand Prix.

Sebastian and Lance took on their F1 rivals and came out on top by making the most shots from the free-throw line, scoring a combined total of nine from 20.

Their victory secured a $20,000 donation to the team's chosen charity, the Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders, which encourages young women to consider motorsport, technology, STEM and engineering as a career choice.

The Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders is a nationally recognised school focused on leadership, college readiness, project-based learning and STEM.

The school's emphasis on college-bound programming, college visits and advising helps each Ann Richards School student find their best college fit, with 65% set to be the first in their families to graduate from college.

With 100% of its students engaged in the STEM curriculum, the Ann Richards School is preparing its students to become leaders in careers where women are traditionally under-represented.

The majority of its students are economically disadvantaged, and the ripple effect of them attending and graduating from college is the ability for its students to lift their families out of poverty and significantly change the course of their lives.

With our platform to foster creativity and innovation, the team is working to inspire the Future Makers of tomorrow.

Not only encouraging young talent to pursue their passions, but also providing and encouraging greater opportunities for girls and individuals from marginalised groups across society.
