It’s just a silly little stat, but F1 fans like these sorts of things. I think it’s kind of cool.
Also, at this weekend’s Austrian Grand Prix, there was a lot of disgusting behavior from a select amount of fans. Misogyny has no place in this world and I’m happy everyone called it out, from the average fan to the drivers to the teams to the police to the heads of F1. The sport has a way to go concerning equality and diversity, but it’s nice to see the people who should be stepping up and leading the way are doing the right thing.
