These sentiments came shortly after Russian deputy prime minister Dmitry Kozak had indicated that he would like to see grid girls in attendance at September's Sochi Grand Prix.

The practice of employing "grid girls", models who perform promotional work at races, was dropped by F1 in January.

Another race that could ignore the grid girl ban is Russian Federation, with organiser Dmitry Kozak saying that women could be on the grid at Sochi in September. They included F1 grid girl Rebecca Cooper, who vented her anger at the "ridiculous" decision on Twitter.

So-called "grid girls" will be present on the starting line during the Monaco Grand Prix next month, Michel Boeri, president of the Automobile Club de Monaco, said in a statement posted to F1i.com Thursday, apparently the result of a deal.

According to Russian news agency Interfax, the deputy Prime Minister boasted: 'Moreover, our girls are the most attractive'.

They were meant to be instead replaced by "grid kids" at all 21 of the season's grand prix.

For the record, Jalopnik's Alanis King was quick to point out that grid kids are supposedly supposed to be chosen from local motorsports clubs, so they should already be comfortable around cars.

Boeri, a lawyer, added, "They look pretty and are part of the Formula 1 landscape".

Kozak disagrees with the switch, saying: 'It's wrong at races to lead out children, who are frightened of mechanical things'. The backlash from drivers, race teams, and internet users before the official decision was enough to dispel any illusions I had, with grown men bemoaning the loss of their "eye candy" if the female models got taken off of the track. Women also stood with the victor on the podium after the race.
