    Keep grid girls in F1, says face of women in motorsport

    Formula One does not need to get rid of grid girls or become more politically correct to attract female drivers, according to the leading ambassador for women in motorsport. Susie Wolff, the former Williams F1 test driver and the only woman who has taken part in a Grand Prix weekend in the past 25 years, said: “I don’t think F1 or other motorsport series have to change to attract more women. I think any woman you ask would not want it to be changed. There should be grid girls. It’s part of Formula One, it’s part of motorsport, it’s part of the glamour.”

    Formula 1: A technical deep dive into building the world’s fastest cars

    F1 drivers experience similar g-force to Apollo astronauts during Earth re-entry. Here’s how they design and make the cars. For over 60 years, Formula 1 teams have developed, tested, and built the fastest and most technologically impressive cars the world has ever seen. An almost unending list of superlatives can be ladled onto F1 cars: they can accelerate from 0 to 190mph in about 10 seconds, fling around a corner at such speeds that the driver experiences g-force close to that of an Apollo astronaut during Earth re-entry...
