Danica talks about F1

Danica Patrick says that she would be interested in racing in Formula 1 at some point in the future if the right opportunity presented itself. The 23-year-old went to Europe when she was a teenager to try to break into single-seater racing and so she knows the ropes, unlike many Americans who find the switch to European ways rather bewildering. Patrick told the Dallas Morning News that she would think about F1 but "only if the right situation came about". Patrick says that "unless you are in the right team things can be difficult".

Patrick will be in Indianapolis this week and will spend some time tomorrow with BAR-Honda, although she will not be doing any demonstration runs with the BAR-Honda F1 car, as had been discussed.

Danica will leave Indianapolis before the United States Grand Prix as she has sponsor commitments in Los Angeles on Sunday.
