Formula One: Grid Girls to be replaced by Grid Kids

Formula One - Grid Girls

After announcing last week the demise of the “grid girls” who graced the paddock in the lead-up to Formula One races, organisers unveiled a new initiative to involve children instead.

World governing body the FIA said the move – using ‘”Grid Kids” already involved in motor racing – would make the pre-race ceremony more relevant for fans.

“Formula 1 is the pinnacle of motor sport and the dream of every young racer competing (in) the junior series… from karting all the way to F1,” FIA president Jean Todt said on the organisation’s website.

“We are therefore delighted to bring that dream a little closer by giving the future champions of our sport the opportunity to stand alongside their heroes on the grid in the build-up to the race start.”
