’No desire’ for F1 switch - Danica Patrick
"I’m getting too old to change careers again and again"
Danica Patrick, the world’s most famous female racing driver, has finally ruled herself out of the running for a switch to formula one.
The 33-year-old former Indycar driver had been linked with a Haas seat for 2016, not only because she is American but because she already drives for Haas’ Nascar outfit.
Last week, however, she signed up to stay at Stewart-Haas for 2016.
And now she has told CNN that she is unlikely to ever consider racing in F1.
"I’m getting too old to change careers again and again, and I don’t really have a desire to do anything different than what I’m doing right now," said Patrick.
"(In Nascar) I’m around my friends and family, and I’m racing internationally — and F1 I don’t think would really provide that.
"I lived in England for a few years and F1 was all I thought about doing, but to be honest when I came back home to the States I thought this is where I want to be," she added.
"You can never say never about anything — but at this point in time, I’m happy where I’m at."
