The grid girls are the lovely ladies who stand by the drivers while the cars are on the grid before the start of the race. They hold up a large sign with the driver’s name and usually stand next to the front left-side tire of the car.

"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."

Another victim of the PC madness!

I just recently watched the Duke video 2017 F-1 season review Blu-ray disc, and I don't think F-1 is been right since the V12 Ferraris.

Screw 'em.

If those PC idiots have their way, and it seems like they're striving towards it, they will take away everything that America has held in tradition for years.

I think we are hearing a loud cracking noise from the usually silent shifts in human evolution. As we distance ourselves from the primal maneuverings of our simian ancestry, we edge closer to a new frontier. Or is it an abyss? Stay tuned fellow bipeds.

Yea, when they got rid of the 12 cylinder engines, that was pretty much it.

Isn't it about time we bag the cheerleaders. Take about cheezy.

Next.

Speaking about half time. How about something more than sensationalized cheezism. Boring.

Nothing wrong with looking at pretty girls with pretty cars.

Since F1 is becoming a spec series, going to need something to bring out the fans.

I have to say I never cared for them. They were an incidental feature on the grid walks I loved Martin Brundle doing, and with the advent of the internet there are so many options.

Are we really saying we need a lady tramping around the ring to make a boxing match 'exciting'?

My opinion, cheezy and demeans the sport.
Not sorry to see them go.

There is style and there is class. Class is back.
