Russian Federation aims to bring back grid girls to F1

Russian Federation aims to bring back grid girls to F1

However, Russian Grand Prix organizing committee head Dmitry Kozak rubbished that idea, and said the grid girls could return at the 2018 event, which is scheduled for September 30 at the Sochi Autodrom.

According to Russian news agency Interfax, the deputy Prime Minister boasted: 'Moreover, our girls are the most lovely'.

Formula One stopped using female models for promotional purposes at races in January after complaints that it was outdated and sexist.

Russian Federation and Monaco appear set to defy orders from Formula One chiefs by bringing back grid girls for their home races.

"If we can reach an agreement we will revive this tradition", Mr. Kozak said, as reported by Interfax.

"Here it should be adults.In all forms of motor sport there are girls advertising cars harmoniously and pleasantly".

They were meant to be instead replaced by "grid kids" at all 21 of the season's grand prix.

Another race that could ignore the grid girl ban is Russian Federation, with organiser Dmitry Kozak saying that women could be on the grid at Sochi in September.

F1's new USA owners Liberty Media said in January the practice of using grid girls - paid models in uniform - wasn't "appropriate or relevant" anymore. Their role has been given to so-called "grid kids", young drivers from local motorsport clubs.

Monaco also took the "our girls are the best, so they get to stay" route to say why they get to ignore the new ruling.

Boeri, a lawyer, added, "They look pretty and are part of the Formula 1 landscape". Our hostesses complete model and PR schools.

When F1 made a decision to replace grid girls, I certainly didn't think it would end sexism in racing. Women also stood with the victor on the podium after the race. "And they are paid for it".
