The list of women competing in Formula One is extremely short.
Since we are seeing women teams in a whole lot of sports nowadays, F1 remains an outlier. Unlike in other sports, there does not seem to be too much of a reason for women and men not to be racing together (as it has already been done). So the reasons for so few women competing in F1 has to be found elsewhere.
I am wondering if any kind of formal, scientific, or at least semi-professional study has been conducted that looks into the structural and cultural aspects of this question and tries to explore why women don't compete. I'm also interested in knowing if the FIA, Formula One Management, or individual teams are currently (or have tried in the past) to encourage more women to compete in the sport.
