No desire for F1 switch says Danica Patrick

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."
