However, grid girls in F1? Monaco does not want to bend …

The organizers of the GP of Monaco with a remarkable point of view. During the F1 race in the principality will indeed be grid girls on the starting grid.

The commotion earlier this year in the Formula 1. Liberty Media, the new owners of the Formula 1, had to know that the grids are girls that are normal in every race on the starting grid were abolished. In the place of the grid girls were the grid kids.

Boeri, however, comes with a compromise. The grid kids will also be in Monaco as the start numbers are allowed to carry, all the pr activities according to Boeri by the grid girls to be performed.

A lot of F1 fans reacted already extremely enthusiastic, curious to see how Liberty Media will react …
