F1 move ”impossible” for Danica Patrick

From GMM

Danica Patrick, the world’s most famous female racing driver, will apparently not be making the switch to formula one with Haas.

The 32-year-old drives in NASCAR for new F1 entrant Gene Haas’ team, but Haas said on Monday he plans to hire from within the sport for his first year and hopefully pair that driver with a young American.

But he warned that it would be “impossible” for any driver to juggle a NASCAR seat whilst preparing for the big switch to F1.

“I’d certainly never expect any of our current lineup of drivers to want to be able to do that,” said Haas at a news conference alongside his F1 team boss, former Jaguar and Red Bull chief Gunther Steiner.

“It would be really impossible to accomplish that and survive. Just the thought of jumping into a formula one car from a (NASCAR sprint) cup car would be very, very difficult,” he insisted.
