Sakhir - Lewis Hamilton insisted on Saturday that he was only joking when he took
to social media to back the return of grid girls at this year's Monaco
The defending four-time world champion had posted a grab from another
Instagram user, which had a picture of some grid girls and added "Thank
you Jesus" before then deleting the message.
"I saw this post and it was just a joke - beautiful girls coming
back, thank you Jesus!," Hamilton told reporters at the Bahrain Grand
Prix on Saturday.
Both the Monaco and Russian Grands Prix have indicated they plan to
defy Formula One's decision to use 'grid kids' instead of girls this
