Danica Patrick has yet to rule out entering Formula One in 2016.

The 32-year-old American currently races for Stewart-Haas Racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series, a team co-owned by F1's newest team owner, Gene Haas.

"She surely fits the bill,” Haas said in an interview with Formula1.com. "Danica Patrick in one of our cars would be the dream driver.

She looks good behind the wheel...

I watched the interview and Gene came across to me as tongue in cheek when he said it. Who knows maybe I read his body and facial expressions wrong.. I personally don't think she has what it takes to drive a F1 car and be competitive, not to mention she's getting up there in age to make a move like this. JMHO

I think I'd take an Offenhauser 4 banger from around 1973 if you offered me one.
Link Posted: 6/18/2014 2:45:10 AM EDT
Please let her do it.

But please dont let her be the driver of the only US team to compete.

She can be a laughing stock for some other country. Jamacia has a bob sled team, do they have an F1 team?

Whatshertits woukd be hilarious to see on the starting grid being wrecked or wrecking on the first turn during launch. Her ego could use a bit of a reality check when up against the truly great drivers.
Link Posted: 6/18/2014 2:45:50 AM EDT
Her skill set makes her more qualified for the Demolition Derby or the Figure 8, they’d be easy money in the bank (see what I did there?). Of course she would fit right in with “Kamikaze Kobayashi”.

I hope it comes to pass. I'm tired of all the fawning over her in NASCAR. Fuck they can't even do "Gentlemen start your engines" anymore. Let her sink into obscurity in F1.

F1.....The soccer of the racing world.

Let's be realistic. It's a new team so they will be starting from the back of the grid no matter who the driver.

That being said, she would out crash Maldonado.

Even the worst, back of the grid F1 drivers either won or placed very highly in other racing series before getting called up. Even then many end up as reserve and Friday drivers for a season or two. Are you telling me someone is just going to hand her a car? She's won what, ONE race like 5 years ago and crashed out of dozens more. I used to be a huge F1 fan, but with all the restrictions and a push for "green" over fast I'm just getting tired of it all.
Link Posted: 6/18/2014 3:32:20 AM EDT
For someone that crashes that much it is odd she holds the Indy car record for consecutive starts without crashing.

If anything, I would fault her for not being aggressive enough.

Her cup contract runs through 2016 I believe, so I doubt F1 would happen.

To be fair to Michael, McLaren was coming off a great year, and then he gets there and their car sucked.
But that's racing.
For some real excitement, let's partner Patrick with Maldonado.

Maybe not a quality ride like she has in SHR, but there are other drivers that have not won for long stretches. Paul Menard won for the first time in 8 years this weekend (nationwide win).

It is interesting to listen to her radio. Often she is very specific in what the car needs and is in control. Other times she seems lost, not knowing what adjustment are needed or seemingly forgetting to try different things. After a year of SHR saying she doesn't need a coach, she is clearly benefiting from Harvick's coaching and the efforts of her team. They are much more active on the radio making suggestions and talking through things. She seems to welcome that. Her improvement has been significant. Mainly in qualifying, where she has laid down some great laps, though inconsistently. Her finishes are improving, though inconsistency is killing her points ranking too. She is often NOT the worse SHR driver in practice, qualifying or racing. You have to wonder if they can put it all together.

I seriously doubt she'd post competitive times in her first practices / qualifying.

107% is in effect, and she probably wouldn't cut it.

FIA would have to approve a license for her to drive F1 and I don't think it's gonna happen.

Michael put a half-assed effort into it. I like him, but he would not stay in Europe and test with the team, etc.

He always came home to the states instead of staying there and putting in the effort.

Shes just now starting to get better at NASCAR racing. I know she is in a very good car, but she does better than some other drivers every week.

She is so gross in person. Flat chested and a huge neck and shoulders because of auto racing. Almost looks like a tranny. Oh and her in a F1 car would be awesome, I like to watch her melt down. She can barley handle a stock car.

Yep. Note that the term "dream" came from the team owner, whose dream is having a fully funded racing team.
