Ecclestone Blasts Formula 1 For Axing Grid Girls

F1 'bans' grid girls while MotoGP looks

I would not mind seeing grid boys next to the girls.

An ex-Formula One model and former Miss England finalist claim that the recent decision to ban female models from being so-called grid girls next season is an example of "feminism has gone too far".

It is not known exactly how much each grid girl is paid for an appearance but a number have said the money was able to support the early years of their modelling careers or their college or university education.

"We're glad to welcome F1 to the 21st century", Formula E said in a statement.

"Over the a year ago we have looked at a number of areas which we felt needed updating so as to be more in tune with our vision for this great sport", said Sean Bratches, Managing Director, Commercial Operations at Formula 1.

Authorities ordered public transport halted and that students be kept inside schools, which are open on Saturdays. That has drawn sharp rebukes that Salvini is using the migrant crisis to foment xenophobia for political gain.

And, what of the "grid girls" themselves?

"Formula E stopped using grid girls previous year already, but we just didn't feel the need to shout about it".

The 87-year-old eccentric (to put it mildly) former boss of Formula 1 is, unsurprisingly, not a fan of Thursday's announcement of the models' removal. "They could have looked at making it more equal between the sexes in the role".

"I have often wondered why MotoGP, just like so many other Motorcycle and other motorsports, need to employ scantily-clad young women in their promotions and events".

I'm quite conservative and paternalistic and I'm not repulsed by that logic, except it seems odd to use it in this case. I hope that women will be encouraged to participate in Motorsport in all ways that suit their own individual choices.

Ironically, this sanction actually provides an element of cover for the lender, which has found growth to be a challenge lately. She's following in the footsteps of her predecessor at the Fed, Ben Bernanke , who joined Brookings in 2014.

"I didn't feel like it was objectifying women necessarily".

Grid girls are hired to carry out promotional work at the F1 and wear clothes representing the sponsors of the event. This is not doing any favors to F1 and especially not for women.

"I feel these decisions are made by women that would never have the confidence to do such a job, which also, believe it or not, requires a great personality", said Hallam, who appeared as a model on the BBC's first-ever episode of Top Gearin 2004. It is expected the role will now be taken by kids, who will be given the chance to stand in front of their favourite driver's grid roles.

As with any potentially controversial issue, such as dealing with gender issues, there's a broad range of opinions about this grid girl situation.
