SAKHIR, Bahrain, Apr 6 – Lewis Hamilton created another social media storm on Friday when he backed the return of grid girls at this year’s Monaco Grand Prix -– and then removed the post.

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”.

The picture-story was in support of the Monaco and Russian Grands Prix indicating they plan to defy Formula One’s decision to use ‘grid kids’ instead of girls this year.
