F1 move ‘out of the question’ for Danica Patrick

Danica Patrick has played down suggestions she might be in pole position to enter formula one next year.

She already drives in Nascar for Stewart-Haas, the team co-owned by F1’s 2016 newcomer, Gene Haas.

32-year-old Patrick’s move from American racing to F1 would be an enormous publicity coup for the sport, as she is undoubtedly the most famous female racing driver in the history of racing.

But she told the German newspaper Welt: “Many, many people have always said that I will move to F1 one day. But no one ever talked to me about it!

“But that’s ok, because I wouldn’t go anyway.

“It’s not so much that I am not interested in driving a formula one car,” Patrick explained. “But in order to do it properly, I would have to leave the US, and for me that is out of the question.

“Also, I only want to do things if I have a chance to win, and as an outsider that would be so difficult in formula one,” she added. (GMM)
