Why don't women participate with men in formula one racing?

Hey there racing enthusiasts! Ever wondered why the Formula One grid is such a boys' club? Well, it's not because ladies can't handle speed (trust me, my wife drives like a Formula One racer when she's late for yoga). Jokes apart, it mainly boils down to a lack of opportunity and representation in this testosterone-fueled sport. Also, the physical demands and the perception of motor racing as a 'man's game' may discourage some women. But, let's not lose hope, I believe the future holds a checkered flag for the ladies too!
