Starting with this season on the starting grid of the Formula 1 support races will not be present the girls with the signs, so says the release FOM released today, January 31.
“Formula 1 will abandon the practice of the presence of grid girls on the starting grid starting with the season 2018 – said in an official statement, the commercial Director of F1 Sean Bratches. – The same applies to all racing series, held in the framework of the weekend of Big Prizes.
Over the past year, we have identified several areas where we need change to sport to meet our vision.
Despite the long history of this tradition, we believe that the presence on the starting grid, grid-girls does not meet our idea of sport, and goes against modern social norms. We do not consider this practice appropriate for Formula 1 and its fans around the world.”
