Missing Grid Girls: Hülkenberg criticizes Hulkenberg
Nico Hülkenberg criticizes a step backwards in show business in Formula 1. As an example, he cites the Grid Girls, which have since been abolished.
Nico Hülkenberg has criticized the recent changes in Formula 1 under the new owner Liberty Media.
Especially the abolition of the Grid Girls announced last week is a “further step backwards in show business for the Emmericher. A couple of hot girls in front of the cars, that’s only conducive to the whole scene,”said Hülkenberg in an interview with No Sports magazine.
Hülkenberg also considers the obligatory introduction of the Halo cockpit protection system for the coming season to be of little help to the show.
“A serious blow to the attraction” is the eleven kilogram titanium temple:”Not only because it looks stupid, but the probability is minimal that an accident will happen where Halo is really helpful.”
In general, the 30-year-old believes that a pinch of danger is essential for Formula 1.
“Motorsport thrives on speed, as all drivers are aware, and we agree that it is not good for Formula 1 to be increasingly sterilised by rules and safety measures. This is against the nature of this sport,”said Hülkenberg.
He knew, he added,”that all drivers are in favour of making the class again faster, more dynamic and much less determined by aerodynamics.”
