What ever happened to.....

.....the drivers throwing their hats off the podium? I remember the drivers used to do it every race in the 1990's. Anyone know why it stopped? Who were the last to do it? I kind of miss it.

1200Datto27 has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Probably because most of the podiums are surrounded by fences that keep the general public too far away from it to make it possible for the drivers to reach them with the hats.

Whatever happened to good old days of the 1960s and '70s? Back when the drivers had to actually to drive the car themselves...

As for the hat throwing,it's probably a health and safety thing.You wouldn't want to get caught in the eye by a wayward baseball cap.

I think the real reason is that you can't advertise whatever if it is spinning through the air.

The wreaths they used to wear in the podium celebrations were removed because they obscured sponsorship logos, which I always think is a bit of a shame.

It is an advertising thing, as martyn alludes to.

It puts me in mind of the podium scene from Le Mans one year. The winning Jaguar drivers were throwing their branded caps to the crowd and kept being handed new ones and asked to keep them on for the sponsor!

Still kept throwing them though!

Money ! Somebody will make a small fortune from selling it on. Sponsors or teams often have a claim on the helmet so its marketing value prevents the former benvolent gestures

Did you see Schumacher's cap toss this morning at Hockenheim? It was on Speed, and it must have traveled at least 100 feet in the air. It was after the podium ceremony and the champagne spraying.

Perthaps we have not seen them because the drivers wait until the caps are champagne soaked for more mass and distance due to the crowds being so far back.............

If thats the case, perhaps the throwing of caps into to the crowd continues, but after the champagne their is little exposure to gain from the caps for TV cameras often switch to something else and so throwing them into the crowd then makes little difference to publicity.
