IndyCar series driver Danica Patrick has confirmed that she is not interested in joining the new USF1 team in Formula One next season, explaining that the pull of family and friends at home in the United States is too much to sacrifice if racing in a World Championship.
Once the launch of the Charlotte-based USF1 team was announed in February, speculation naturally began over the team's driver line-up; the outfit founded by Ken Anderson and Peter Windsor has not make any secret of the fact that it would prefer to have at least one driver from its own country, with Patrick Patrick often mentioned as one of the candidates. When asked if she would be interested in the possibility, however, Danica's words are clear: "Not really," she told the LA Times.
"I've had opportunities to take it a step further, with Formula One, and I don't want to lead anyone down a path; it's not in my heart to go there, I've explored Europe before - I particularly like to be here and I like my family and my friends plus the creature comforts of my home country."
