    Sexist, racist F1 Formula One introduces grid girl ban "let the racers find their own

    F1 introduces grid girl ban

    Formula 1 has announced it will no longer use 'Grid Girls' in the sport, starting from the upcoming 2018 season.


    In a statement released on Wednesday, F1 said it "will end the long-standing practice of using walk-on Grid Girls," in a move that will also apply to other race series taking place as part of the grand prix weekend schedule at each venue. As the debate over the relevance of grid girls has increased in recent years, F1 had previously experimented with using men in the same role at certain races, but has now dropped the practice altogether.


    Explaining the decision, the statement added: "Formula 1 considers the time spent by teams and drivers on the grid before a race as one of celebration, where guests and various performers can add to the glamour and spectacle of the Grand Prix, enabling promoters and partners to showcase their countries and products."


    Grid Girls have previously been used to hold driver boards and flags pre-race, as well as lining the route to the podium after the checkered flag. F1's owners Liberty Media recently said the practice was "under review" and the sport's managing director of commercial operations, Sean Bratches, says Grid Girls are now outdated.


    "Over the last year 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," Bratches said. "While the practice of employing Grid Girls has been a staple of Formula 1 Grands Prix for decades, we feel this custom does not resonate with our brand values and clearly is at odds with modern day societal norms.


    "We don't believe the practice is appropriate or relevant to Formula 1 and its fans, old and new, across the world."

    If F1 Formula One ever paid them anything, exactly how much money did they save?

    This is a little like football teams firing all the cheer leaders.

    I am a professional racing driver who believes in equality. Would you like to feel inspired to be who and what you want to be without judgement?

    If a woman wants to be a grid girl, she should be allowed to do so.
    Each of the 4 women on the show WANT to be grid girls and say that they are NOT
    being exploited.

    So it's looking like the FEMINISTS are the ones who complained and took away
    the choice of what a woman should be allowed to do!....and F1 Formula One
    knuckled under to please the feminists.

    Taking away a woman's choice is completely against what the feminists SAY that they want.
    Every time the liberals and the leftists get involved and politicize something, it destroys
    whatever that something is.

    When the NFL got into leftist/liberalism and treatment of the US flag, viewership DRASTICALLY
    went down. So take a knee NFL and screw yourself.

    Funny how leftists idea of "Pro-choice" is the choice to kill infants, while all other choices should be controlled by them. Leftists are not called Leftards for nothing...

    We use to have "dwarf tossing". Then these same people outlawed these events which provided these volunteers with money/employment. The same people are not providing any jobs for those that lost their jobs. Same scenario.

    They will destroy everything that is wholesome,anything where there's an interest in men and women, we are the enemy, of coarse, because to normal people. Like you and me This is normality, this is nature, As a man looking and admiring beautiful women is a joy, Of course it is, it's called the laws of attraction, and of coarse it's the same for women with men, feminist are only happy when the destroy these values, simply because they are so embittered by life, full of hate, jealousy, and misery, There ultimate goal is to make everyone else the same as them.

    imagine you're young and beautiful looking forward to a great well paid job over the summer mixing with the rich and famous then someone says you're sacked, how gutting this must be for these young women, being laid off or made redundant is awful, I hope it happens to the instigators of this selfish action.

    Is it just me, or does the American Left and the Muslim Jihidist both seem to be on a track that will intersect at "nothing enjoyable or funny is allowed?" Seems to me there is an inevitable point of intersection coming up soon. What will we have once all fun is destroyed and they discover they have absolutely nothing else in common with one another?

    The definition of sexiest is firing a girl simply because she is a girl. The feminist have had the grid girls fired because they are attractive women. Sounds very sexist to me.

    Elenor Hinton made such a great statement at the end of her interview. She said she "would be interested in having a discussion with someone from the other point of view." These women were never even spoken with. They lost their jobs, and an entire sport lost part of its heritage because of women who want to empower women and aren't even interested in this sport to begin with.



    They've done nothing positive here. It's just another example of a minority of loud voices ruining normal life for those around them, and instead of those voices being told to piss off, they're catered to, and it only empowers them to do more damage.

    People who cant even sort out their own lives busy telling other people how to live and who they should be in order to be 'equal'. They haven't got a clue what their idea of Equal and actual equality are.
