Now that the 2023 Formula 1 season has ended, Max Verstappen has been crowned King Of All Drivers, etc., some questions still remain.
Asks Onetime Drummer Knob:
Simple answer: Liberty fucking Media.
Long answer: Liberty fucking Media, a bunch of woketard American businessmen who bought into the trope that grid girls were “exploiting” womyns and glorifying “unnaturally beautiful” women because of the race organizers’ consistent refusal to make grid girls “more representative” of womyns by adding Lizzo-style fatties to the mix.
Imagine introducing this:
…and I think you’ll see where I’m going, here.
So Liberty fucking Media just banned the whole institution from F1, the wokist assholes. Which worked everywhere except Monaco, where the race organizers told them to take a hike.
Expect to see Monaco dropped from the F1 circuit at some point soon. Oh there’ll be Reasons, e.g. “the Monaco streets are too narrow to race the new F1 cars*”, but it’s going to happen.
*The streets aren’t too narrow; it’s the cars that have got fat and bloated.
…like Lizzo vs. the old-style grid girls.
