    Forward not backward, this is a pathetic decision and an ill-thought out overreaction. There will now be ZERO female representation in F1?

    UGH... F1 is dying. Next there will be a rule that 50% of the drivers have to be women and points will be assigned based on how privileged you are. Sebastian Vettel wins: 1 point, fat, ugly, minority tranny in a wheel chair comes in 22nd = 4,506 points.

    Stop the bus, I want to get off.

    This political correctness is getting out of hand, but I suppose it gives us more room on the grid to change our spark-plugs.

    Perhaps the grid girls future is with F E ? Is this Todt's new "Team orders?"

    I do not watch F1 for the grid girls, but I find it increasingly aggravating that a vocal minority of complaining, gender baiting, hustlers dictate what is and isn't socially acceptable. Thanks for robbing some of the glitz and glamour from my sport, shrews!

    I don't think this is just F1's problem. This is where the world is heading to. Feminism is prevailing. Soon, there will be no grid girls in all of mainstream motorsport.

    I could be wrong, but isn't F1 owned by an American company?

    There would be anarchy here in the states if they got rid of cheerleaders, boxing girls, UFC girls, motorcross girls, IMSA girls or any other sport that has girls in it promoting the event. By the way, did anyone bother to ask the F1 grid girls if THEY had a problem with it???? again, the PC police dictating for another body of what they think is morally and ethically correct without even asking that body (F1 grid girls) if they had a problem.

    anyways....things get better

    Anyone ready for timetable changes? It's possible? I was okay with the current schedule and did not mind getting up at 2:30am (only getting 4 to 5hrs of sleep) to watch practices and races BUUUUUUT....


    F1 race start times could change in plans to boost TV ratings

    Formula 1 race start times could be shifted back to 3.10pm at the majority of events from 2018 as part of an effort to boost the television audience.

    This would mean typical European races would move away from the traditional 2pm start slot they have held for decades.

    Furthermore, there is the idea to move the races back a further 10 minutes - to start at 3.10pm - to help better fit with commercial television channel coverage, especially with the American audience and the need to run adverts before the start.

    It added a further practice session must take place the day before the race and the qualifying must "take place on the day before the race and will start no less than two hours after the end of P3."

    The timetable changes will only apply for events that run to a normal daytime slot, with Singapore and Bahrain running to a full night race schedule and Abu Dhabi again expected to hold its event at dusk.

    The start time of the French Grand Prix this year is also expected to be moved back another hour - to 4.10pm - in a bid to avoid a direct clash with the England vs Panama World Cup game that begins at 2pm French time.

    The governing body is European though and it's an European based sport dominated by European manufacturers and viewership.

    This reminded me that it could've been worse than ending up with no grid girls.

    And while we're at it lets ban national anthems, remove all colors and team identifications and instead of the WCC and WDC we will just give everyone a "participation certificate".

    If he said something against the HALO as well, he would've been the perfect representative.

    F1 drivers to wear biometric glove for 2018. Mandatory for 2019.

    Late last year, a report indicated that the glove developed by the FIA will include a 3mm sensor that feeds lifesaving data to the medical team to help in the event of a serious crash.

    I'm sure there are many grid girls who enjoy what they are doing.
    It's not that different from modelling.

    To me, grid girls are like those jets flyby, driver's parade, or that anthem part with the drivers standing at the front of the grid
    They serve no technical purpose, but they are all part of a race weekend fanfare.

    F1 management should really be more careful that the sport doesn't end up being a platform for political/social agenda.
