Interesting article and great read. Glad to know there are F1 fans here.

I kinda lost interest after they banned grid girls, er, the engines got so puny and no longer had the V12, 10 sounds that always created excitement.

Actually, this was a very controversial decision. Even former champ Lauda was against it, as were quite a number of models who worked as grid girls.

A female test driver for Williams also had an opinion:  https://www.bbc.com/sport/formula1/42903658

I don't know. Maybe a step towards political correctness?

Yes, it certainly seems like political correctness. Its a new (sad) era. Im not much of a F1 fan anyway. Im more interested in the Indy circuit with the amazing speeds and downhill skiing where the participants are nearly always close to the edge.
It also made me think of Michael Schumacher and wonder how hes doing in his recovery. There isnt any current informationabout his condition.

Yes, this is very sad. I was a very big fan of Schumacher, especially after Senna's passing. They still have a news blackout and his family is very protective of his current condition.
