No, I'm not a massive fan of those threads either to be honest. Would have thought that obvious. I don't tend to want to objectify either sex of athlete, or their spouses. I follow a lot of sports - F1, tennis, rugby league, NFL, cycling - and I like to watch for the sport itself, not "who is cute".
But each to their own. People are superficial beasts, these threads will pop up. I tend to think they only work if they are done in fun. I did participate in this one after all! I heart Nico Hulkenberg and all that.
The OP railing against the discussion of drivers' fathers for privacy reasons when there is an entire thread dedicated to their wives was fairly odd.
oh come on don't start again... you can discuss their fathers but the picture you posted was offensive... simple as that... besides I'm neither shallow nor superficial... I would never dislike someone because of their looks and exactly that was my problem...
for you it might be fun to joke about people whos buttcrack is showing.... but to call others superficial then is quite funny
and of course we watch f1 not for the looks... why do we even need to discuss that? You are aware of yourself right? But there is no harm saying who we think are attractive... I mean come on... nobody gets hurt by that.... except for when you make fun about people you think are ugly... and that ALSO was a reason why I disliked that one picture so much...
anyway... thats the last thing I say to that topic...... I know why most of my friends are guys x.x...
to the topic:
On a sidenote.... Vettels trainer is kind of attractive too not a driver tho
