Liberty Media has announced that the ever popular Formula 1 Grid Girls are now gone! As a staple of the Formula 1 pre-grid, the girls would stand before each driver’s F1 car with name and number. But as part of the politically correct world we live in, the girls have been scrapped. Liberty Media bought the rights to Formula 1 from Bernie Eccelstone who slammed the decision in an interview in the UK’s Express. (image by Alamy)
