Danica Flattered By F1 Interest
IRL driver Danica Patrick has declared herself very flattered by the interest that has been shown in her by new F1 project, USF1.
The USF1 team is a new venutre which wants to put a US designed and built car, on the grid with US sponsors and drivers.
Last week they claimed they were very interested in running Danica Patrick in the team, seeing her as a good driver and also someone who could get more American’s into F1, away from their diet of NASCAR and IRL.
“There weren’t any quotes from me because they haven’t spoken to me,” Patrick was quoted as saying by the Globe and Mail newspaper.
“It’s very flattering. I think that any time you are in the same sentence as Formula One, it’s a flattering thing.”
“I haven’t really expressed a lot of excitement and interest in world travel. We’ll see what they’ll say though. Maybe they’ll call.”
