Women lack the mental skill for F1
 
According to Stirling Moss.

Dunno. Make some more female F1 drivers and then we can find out.

well considering he said he didn't want a gay actor to play him if they ever made a film about him, Relic.

I've never heard of him and I don't think his views are worth my time

Well F1 has had a few female drivers over the decades, sooner or later we'll see one lining up on the grid. And good luck to them.

You could almost raise a concern about the strength issue, even if that's a flimsy argument... but this fellow has it backwards. Hopefully he'll get a well deserved lawsuit from the next rejected female applicant.

He's either senile or been drinking brake fluid...

Also, last month he was very vocal about not wanting to be played "by a poofter or anything like that, he'd have to be masculine" in any biopic of him...

ETA- ah, somebody already mentioned that.

Why? Does the race not end until you parallel-park your racecar? :lol:

Williams has a Scottie lass as their test driver just now. I don't think she's good enough to make the first team but that's quite an achievement at that level of competition.

That would be Scottish lass, Susie Wolff though it might help that her husband is Toto Wolff is executive director of the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team.

Moss should have a talk with Michele Mouton, who came second in the 1982 world rally championship and won loads of races. i doubt she'd stand for someone calling her lacking mental skill.

Never heard of Stirling Moss, one of the most famous drivers in the history of auto racing?

But then, I wouldn't be able to name ten current American baseball players.

I couldn't name ten current American baseball players but then I'm not American
