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
