While a woman might possibly make it to F1 it will be with a back of the grid team however good she might be. No top team will ever sign a woman for a variety of reasons. Thats a shame, but a hard fact of like, having a woman driver in your team is just for publicity for the lesser teams and not because anybody thinks she is going places. A season or two in a crap car is enough to deter anyone just ask Desire Wilson.

Yes she will. She will not (with greatest of respect to whoever she is) win the F1 World Championship. With luck, she will win a race as they have done in IndyCar. Get your facts right Damon and stop wasting our time- you may have nothing else to do with yours.

Always thought Damon to be a bit of an old woman and he won a championship.

I expect the idea of a separate series appeals as if the ladies race first, they can get the tea and sandwiches ready for the chaps *ducks*

Women and high performance vehicles do not mix. When you let them fly fighter planes, they crash. When you let them drive f1 cars, they crash. How long before this nonsense stops?

@ xl - there are some pretty awesome fighter pilots that are female around the world (talked up by their male counterparts). Having said that, an F1 car (IMO) is a different league that requires a male touch - The balls to through that car into the corner faster than ever or anyone. No disrespect ladies !
