Wolff: female F1 driver 'will definitely happen'

"But I think we all know how competitive F1 is, how many drivers are fighting for a chance to be on that grid," she admitted. "I don't want to come out with any bold statements or dream of saying 'yes, I want to be on the grid next year'.

"I'm in the right direction, I'm taking each step at the time, I'm showing the guys in the team what I can do.' she added. "But let's see how it goes, I'm taking each step at a time. For sure a superlicence is the next thing on the to-do list, so let's see."

Will everyone catch up??!! It's already happened! Giovanna Amati ( 1991 / 1992 season ), drove at the back very slowly, but still, IT'S ALREADY HAPPENED!!! I was only 8 years old and I can remember her so why are all the older F1 'experts' talking like its never happened before?!

Won't happen in my lifetime. Danica's done well, but in series that in a nutshell 'aren't F1' (one populated mainly by has beens and never will be's, the other by racers using a totally different technique), and she is clearly much less competitive on 'road' courses. Then who have we got, historically? No-one really. I have great respect for female athletes, but the reason elite sports are for the most part single-sex is that women just can't compete on a like for like basis with men. Look at the 'power' sports like NFL, even white males are struggling to make a mark. The one hope for women in F1 is that there is 'something else' involved (ie the car), and one sport where females do feature prominently is equestrian (which of course also involves a dobbin) - ALTHOUGH with 60% of elite showjumpers being men, from only 5% at grass roots level, even this sport demonstrates that men are just fundamentally superior - again, no slight on women, my daughter rides and she is braver than I
