Yesterday we reported that Danica Patrick would test with the Honda F1 team at the end of the season. That report was a false start: Honda F1 CEO Nick Fry said there was no arrangement for Danica to test, and that she and the team have had no contact. However, Fry did say that if she wanted to test, they "would be more than happy to speak to her about it." The original source for the Danica-will-be-testing article was an Austrian newspaper interview with the same Nick Fry, which even included a time frame for the test. Something was apparently lost in translation... Thanks for the tip, NIBAL!

      Is it me, or does she look like a pouty 8 year old that found mommy's sunglasses in that picture?

      I don't know if it's the oversized frames or the poutiness, but she definitely looks very, very young.

      Don't you mean sexisim or masogonism? Unless of course you were refering to black people being racist against Danica or maybe Asians agianst Danica. The Asian thing makes little sense though considering the F1 team is Honda. Or maybe you thought the Auto bloggers would lash out at Honda out of racial furry?

      Maybe Nick Fry meant he would like to "test" Danica..

      Please don't compare her Hamilton, he's such a good driver. I would like to see how does he compare to Schumacher though.

      I used to hate her, but now I don't. It's actually pretty impressive that there is one woman in the world that can drive a vehicle without wrecking every other day. Oh wait...she DID hit that crew chief...oh well, never mind then.

        Well, the guy did get in her way, and wasn't paying attention to what was coming

        And if you saw the Canadian Grand Prix, well, Lewis Hamilton probably was dumber than any driver when he "missed" the red light

      I still don't understand the Danica hype.

      She's an average looking woman who's won what - 1 race?

      Sorry I didn't know "good" drivers like Lewis missed red lights and hit parked cars.

      Gabriella Sabatini... when you're the best of the regulars in an otherwise ugly sport, you're then naturally a beauty. Skill wise, I give her credit, she is pretty good, irrespective of gender.

      I'd like to test her out as well.
