They shouldn't change the group. They should continue to "pander" to those that they think are the future fans. I assume businesses "pander" to their customers all the time. Or better said... listen to their wants.

Clearly all customers may not agree.

The grid girl discussion thread ran its course and eventually was locked (it became the trainwreck I knew it would). I don't want this thread to turn into that discussion. So... No more comments from me on this topic. It is just rehashing that thread anyhow. Everyone is not going to agree.

But... thanks Mike for the link regarding the news.

They don't have Lewis, or Vettel.

That's strike one for Liberty Media. Absolutely stupid decision.

You only have to read the comments posted under that BBC Sport article link to see this was not a good decision. 99.9% of the comments are against this decision.

sure, but instead of listening to randomers off the internet talk to women actually trying to work in the sport in any other role and see what they say. this one isn’t about what men and the privileged 30 or 40 girls per event think, it’s a far, far bigger thing than that.

there’s no point in bothering to discuss this any more tbh. nobody is going to change their viewpoint no matter how much energy everyone wastes on it.

as someone on twitter said, remember it’s not The Feminists that have decided to stop booking models for work, it’s a bunch of middle aged conservative men. the same ones who are umming and ahhing over whether to change race start times
