Many Women Work in F1; Why No Women Drivers?

2016-09-30T11:04:26Z

In what is essentially considered a macho sport, there are a few women who are breaking the mold in Formula 1, where, as is the tradition elsewhere in auto racing, they usually occupy marketing, media relations and hospitality jobs. While more women than ever work the technical jobs to make the cars go fast, the one area where they are still absent is behind the steering wheel.

A revolution in racing car body materials in the early 1980s led to the standard Formula 1 racing car chassis of today. No longer made of a metal, today's F1 cars are made of an ultra light and strong plastic-like material called carbon fiber, which used to be more associated with the aerospace industry than with racing cars. Formula 1 engineers have become so adept at working with carbon composite materials, however, that other industries now turn to it for advice.
