I’ll counter this this with Jennie Gow – who’s obviously an F1 journalist (and a female one at that): https://twitter.com/JennieGow/status/958812266333339648
Her article on ESPN: […]
Face it, the WEC got rid of grid girls in 2015, the world hasn’t fallen off its axis and you all still watch it.
On a side note, I never knew so many men were interested in the employment opportunities for women!

I find the incongruity between this discussion regarding grid girls and Carmen Jorda’s idea of two separate series for men and women very interesting.
On the one hand, Jorda (rightly) received flack for […]
As an F1 fan who just happens to be a woman, yes, we should get rid of grid girls.
To all those saying “it’s their choice!”… when you see a situation where one gender exclusively has one role, and one […]
There has never been a problem with getting women involved in motorsport… namely in marketing, PR, PA and modelling. In other words: women’s jobs have been to stand there and just look pretty, darlin’, and let […]
No, they’re doing it because they now have the ability to. Drivers are only booed in the podium interviews, and they’ve only been happening since Silverstone ’12. And Vettel wasn’t even on the podium in Brazil. […]
There is no conspiracy. I’m not sure why anyone, the face of statistics, still wants to suggest there is. Why would *any* team, much less one that’s currently first in the WCC, purposely sabotage, or whatever you […]

If that were the case, it’s not just F1’s ‘funding’ that need completely overhauling, but the entire motorsport industry’s funding too. Take Anthony Hamilton as an example: famously having three jobs in order to […]
Using the scale, 1 is terrible and 10 is perfect. Someone rating Silverstone a 9 would indicate that the race, to them, was ‘almost perfect’, little wrong with it. By rating it ‘almost perfect’ one could probably […]
Exactly. I hate to be cliché but a delamination like that can cause a fatal accident. Now, I am very much aware that all motorsport is dangerous, and fatal accidents can happen at any race.
This race could […]
It’s also people like you (again, no offence) who skew the results. This race was unsafe. End of.
9/10 for that race? So, what you’re saying is that that race was close to perfect for you and you want more […]
I’m going to have to give it a ‘4’, not because I disliked the result, or because my favourite driver retired… but because I cannot justify rating any race that had such safety concerns highly.
Sure, we had […]
Previous to F1, he created and managed Arden, a team that he’s still principal of, and helped give many a driver a seat in the lower formulas. He then came into the paddock as the youngest team principal ever and […]
If that truly is the case, why did Silverstone, according to the article:
have the biggest crowd of the season last year, with a record race day attendance of 127,000
…off the back of a season completely […]
‘Vettel effect’? So it’s nothing to do with the organisational disaster that was last year? Or the fact that you need to re-mortgage your house if you want a decent spot? Nothing to do with that at all? C’mon, […]
Because it’s completely and utterly wrong, that’s why, not to mention completely insulting.
A couple of years ago someone named Captain Lisa Head died in service in Afghanistan. She’d been through Sandhurst and […]
