14 y/o daughter of fmr F1 driver dreams of becoming first woman to win F1 Grand Prix

Denmark, Padborg
July 8, 2020 at 10:11 GMT -00:00 · Published

Juju Noda dreams of becoming the first ever woman to win a Formula One Grand Prix, after winning her debut race in the Danish F4 at the age of 14 a few weeks ago, she said during a training session in Padborg, Denmark, Tuesday.

The young racer expressed how much she enjoys driving, be it in a go kart or a formula car, recounting she started driving a kart at the age of three.

Although her father was an inspiration to her, she defends she has her own driving style and only gets tips from her father, Hideki Noda, who raced in three Grands Prix, when he sees she is struggling to find an answer.

Her father is by her side during the whole process, coaching her and keeping track of her stats and practices as seen on the footage.

He underlined how proud he is of her, not only as a dad but also as a professional racer, adding that he believes it is possible for her to achieve her dream of Formula One success because she is "talented" and that he will support her on ever step of the way.

Juju has to climb up through the mixed genders formulas to get to fight for the pole position one day in F1, which has still never seen a female winner, although she will have to wait until she at least 18 to finally start racing in F1.

According to the motivated Juju, due to physical strength differences it is not "fair" to compete against boys, as she "has to practice more than them."

There are only three girls, including Juju, competing in this year's F4 against 15 boys, but Juju is not afraid of them.

"I'm very motivated to beat the boys and when I beat them I feel good and it's very cool to beat them," she said.

Some people have been comparing her to Max Verstappen, a Dutch driver who won a cup when he was 16, with Juju still having time to surpass that achievement.

The young racer's next race will be in September, with Juju and her father will remain practising restlessly in Denmark.
