Cape Town - 'Grid girls' have come under scrutiny years ago, so it really is no surprise that an increasingly progressive world and under the new Liberty Media regime, F1 sporting director Ross Brawn has admitted that using scantily clad women on the grid is "under strong review".

He told the BBC: "There's a lot of people who respect the tradition and there's people who feel that it has become a bit dated, so we're addressing that.
 
However, F1 drivers Max Verstappen and Nico Hulkenberg have both aired their views on the matter.

Verstappen was quoted as telling Bild newspaper: "The grid girls must stay."

Hulkenberg added: "It would be a pity if they took the eye-jewellery from the grid.

"What will come next year instead?  Halo? Oh dear," the Renault driver added.
