Austrian Grand Prix on the search for 'grid girls'

The organisers of the Austrian Grand Prix taking place in July this year are on the search for '50 Formula Unas' - pretty, charismatic and energetic young women to help out at the internationally broadcast event.

Donning Austria's traditional Dirndl dress, the grid girls will be on hand to hold up flags, assist at presentation ceremonies and represent Austria at the parties.

Interested applicants have to be 18 years or older, interested in racing, well versed in English and, of course, eager to throw themselves into the Formula 1 weekend in July. The deadline for applications is 3 May 2014.

This year's F1 Grand Prix is the first time in nearly ten years it has been hosted in Austria. The last time Formula 1 was featured in the A1-Ring, otherwise known as the Red Bull Ring, was in 2003, when it had been an annual event since 1997. Before that the Austrian Grand Prix had been not been put on for nearly a decade.

Since Red Bull bought the circuit in 2004, company owner Dietrich Mateschitz pushed to try and bring F1 back to Austria, succeeding when they signed a deal last year.
