Is it just me, but I does anyone else think that photo shoot in Hello magazine destroyed everything W Series is working for?

Getting young drivers to dress up in glam clothing completely ruins the image of the girls as "serious racers fighting a sexual stereotype" and re-enforces the old buffer view.

Such a shame. I thought the sport was rising above that, especially in F1 with the cancellation of the grid girls.

Alessio should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I get what you mean, but it’s not like Lewis or Alonso etc have never done any “modelling” before.

Yes and they're derided for it. Equally F1 wasn't set up to change gender stereotypes.

I don't know. If you see Lewis Hamilton or Jamie Chadwick as any less of a racing driver because they did a modeling shoot, that says more about the individual than stereotypes. They can do what they want, otherwise, it becomes another situation of men telling women what they can and can't do.

Chadwick has won 10 of 18 W Series races now, by far the GOAT in that series...
