3 March 2023 Fundraising


A rising star in racing will raise awareness of motor neurone disease (MND) on an international stage as he embarks on the 2023 FIA Formula 2 Championship season.

17 year old Ferrari Academy driver Ollie Bearman will proudly display the MND Association’s logo on his jersey and racing car for the entire 2023 season.

Described as the hottest property in British motorsport, Ollie has already impressed the motorsport world with his skills and tenacity. This next step up into Formula 2 poses an opportunity for him to showcase his talent on the quest for his ultimate goal, a spot in Formula 1.

Ollie expressed excitement about working with MND Association, stating that he is "honoured to support the MND Association", a charity "that does incredible work to improve care and provide support for people with MND."

Richard Parris, Corporate Development Manager at the MND Association said:

“This partnership with Ollie represents a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness of MND and the MND Association on the international stage. Formula One is one of the fastest growing sports in the world and we are delighted that a young talent with F1 in his sights can help make a difference to our work.”

Fans can follow Ollie’s journey through the 14-round season when it gets underway at the Sakhir International Circuit, Bahrain, from Friday 3 March.
