We need women
I agree with Ian Mills’ column ( Motorsport News, March 19). We need more women in motorsport and juniors as well.
Why are more women more interested in rugby union? England is the women’s rugby union world champions and, in women’s football, England’s women finished in third place in the 2015 World Cup. Importantly, the women’s football World Cup was shown on the BBC.
Bernie Ecclestone’s comments about women in motorsport have also been very unhelpful in the past.
Motorsport is mostly on pay TV these days and that can’t help the issue, but motor racing needs to embrace female competitors and catch up with other sports that already do this.
