Maybe try contacting someone already in that field for advice? Someone like Hazel Southwell springs to mind, (here is her Twitter). Bit of a long shot, but worth a try for the sake of sending a polite message. You could also try looking through her mutuals to see if there is anyone else in a similar role that you are aiming towards :smile:
Another though occured, (and apologies if you've done something similar already), is to watch/record as many motorsport related programmes that you can find, and make a note of the production companies involved at the end of the credits. You can then go to their websites and see if they offer any internships or placements.
Some careers resources collected by the Silverstone Motorsport Museum.

You should check out a website called Formula Careers. They have a decent bit about non-technical careers in F1 as well. I am working towards becoming an engineer in F1 so I don't know too much about journalism unfortunately. Also, LinkedIn is a great tool if you are looking for a career in motorsports. You could look into that as well, helped me a lot personally. Like go to any F1 team or motorsports firm and type in keywords like journalism etc. and you can see the profiles of the people into such stuff and what skill sets they have. Formula Careers are there on LinkedIn as well

Hope this helps. Feel free to ask any other questions I can help with
