Paulaweybridge has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
On ITVís Breakfast Time earlier this week, over 85% of people thought that grid girls should remain 😜

Formula E are now making a u turn on grid girls, saying it makes no difference. So fair play to them

Perhaps it's not actually very important. It certainly won't get me interested in Formula E.

Well it looks like the Aus GP organisers have taken a different approach. We know Ricciardo was still keen to have Grid Girls - I guess he'll be partly happy because Red Bull have aligned with an alternative and this year we have 'Glamour on the Grid':

to be honest i cant say i have a problem with this.

from the link, she sounds like she has her own business/health services/lifestyle products that she is promoting so i see this as an entrepreneur advertising their skill set, promoting their brand via F1.

very different then a collection of sign/placard holders imo.

anyways, one positive about the Halo is that the general consensus of hate around it has diffused the outrage surrounding the grid girl controversy.

Men objectify women, and women objectify men. It happens. Is it the worst thing in the world? Iíd say no. This is just a form of modelling, and you have to be quite a radical feminist to condemn the modelling industry as a whole.

I'm ambivalent. On one hand, using women to promoting car racing and/or the car industry seems dated and smacks of sexual exploitation. On the other hand, this is something she has chosen to do and therefore any notion of sexual exploitation is under her control.

However, sometimes the huge sums of money that can be thrown the way of these participants means that they often throw their principles out of the window.
