Seb and Lance share message with female STEM school after team donation

Sebastian Vettel, 2021 Mexican GP

Sebastian Vettel and Lance Stroll have shared inspiring messages to the Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders after Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team's $20,000 donation.

The team won F1's Free Throw challenge when Sebastian and Lance combined to shoot nine from 20 as teams went head-to-head to celebrate F1's partnership with the NBA.

The victory earned the team $20,000 to donate to their charity of choice, and the Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders – located in Austin, Texas – was selected.

A nationally recognised school focused on leadership, college readiness, project-based learning and STEM, the school encourages young women to consider careers in motorsport, technology, STEM, and engineering.

A message from Lance and Sebastian

On National STEM Day, we thank the Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders. Your work in encouraging STEM education is crucial in nurturing future talent.

A video message to the team

In a video message, Lance hopes the donation will inspire students to follow their dreams, and Sebastian encourages students to take all opportunities in science, technology and motorsport.

In response, senior student Ali Jensen pays tribute to Sebastian and Lance's efforts, as well as thanking the team for its donation and support.

The team is not only encouraging young talent to pursue their passions, but also providing and encouraging greater opportunities for girls and individuals from different ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds.

Make your mark: I / AM.
