"A man and a woman fucking makes a baby!"
Russia wants to bring back the custom of so-called grid girls to Formula One, the organiser of the country’s grand prix this year has said. One reason given was because “our girls are the most beautiful”.
Formula One stopped using female models for promotional purposes at races in January after complaints that it was outdated and sexist. They were replaced by “grid kids”: children, mainly boys, competing in junior categories of motor racing.
Dmitry Kozak, the Russian deputy prime minister who is chairman of the organising committee for the race in Sochi in September, said: “Of course it’s not right to bring out children, who are afraid of machines. There should be adults.
“Girls advertise cars in all motor sport, it looks harmonious and nice. And if we can agree it, then we will revive this tradition.” The young women previously performed tasks such as holding driver name boards on the grid and lining the corridor through which drivers walked to the podium.
