    Well it does sound like it. I'm sure he'll get plenty of chances to explain.

      This is news? He is in Formula 1 after all. You know the series owned by a guy who thinks women drivers are better suited to be "domestic appliances". JB fits right in.
      For the record, I never had a problem with CART in 1995. Its when they turned beligerant twards IMS and their fans for supporting the IRL that turned me off them.

        1)Someone tell Jensen that not all women have big boobs (guess he's never seen Danica! ).

        2) Not all women go whacko or have "problems" every month.

        3) Methinks JB's been hanging around Bernie too much

        4) Sexism in F1....who'd thunk it?

          Hes a kid, 25.

          What other women besides Desire Wilson was in F1? Will it change? I really dont care.

          Oh to be 25 again and top it off with worldwide recognition and a couple of million Euros.

            Desire Wilson never drove in an F1 race. She drove a car, but never qualified for any race.

            Lella Lombardi of Italy was the only female driver to score a point (and it was actually half-a-point) at Spain in 1975. And honestly it was a lucky half-point.

            There was also this lady in F1 during the 50s

              Sounds to me like Jensen has pulled off a "Gotcha". But you are free to believe as you wish.

                  It's from FHM Magazine. It's tongue-in-cheek. Yet again Mr Irony fails to cross the Atlantic.

                    Well, technically, she never qualified for a World Championship F1 race, but she did race in a few non-Championship races, such as the 1981 South African Grand-Prix. She drove for Tyrrell in that race, her teammate was Eddie Cheever. She qualified in 1:15:56, Cheever in 1:14:95. The best lap of her race was in 1:17:18 (Lap 48), Cheever's in 1:16:20 (Lap 60). They were both driving Tyrrell 010s.

                      To be fair to her, she was 2 seconds faster in a private test than in qualifying for the British Grand Prix. Unfortunately the car she received for the race was substandard and did not have proper sliding skirts on it.

                      Desire had the ability to compete with the boys.

                        Looks like Nigel has something to say about it.

                          Button said that women could never make it in F1 because their bodies couldn't cope with the G-forces.

                          15 minutes in an Extra with Patty W. and lil' Button Boy would be crying like....well, a little girl.
