Dutch politician Roy van Aalst has slammed the removal of grid girls from Formula 1 as an example of "female patronizing," calling for organizers to return the models for next seasons Grand Prix in his homeland.
Aalst, a member of the Party for Freedom in the house of representatives, expressed hope that podium girls will take part in next years event in Zandvoort as the Dutch Grand Prix returns to the F1 calendar for the first time in 35 years.
"The decision that the FIA has taken is the umpteenth form of female patronization. Grid girls belong just as much to Formula 1 as the cars,” Aalst said.
"Only a huge idiot can see a beautiful woman as a problem. The rest of the people love it. It is part of motorsport and the PVV wants us to ensure that next year this beautiful tradition will be restored to its former glory!" he added.
