If you ask me personally, I don't think a seat should be given to a driver(or rider in the case MotoGP, SBK) based one gender , let alone nationality, sexuality, race, etc because in the end, all it does is essentially devolve the sport into nothing but a sideshow. When a driver(or rider) become nothing but a sideshow all it does take away from the mission of the sport and hurts the image of the sport overall. In the case of Ms. Patrick she'll have her day, but when things are said and done she'll have to prove to NASCAR and her sponsors that she's more than just a sideshow. Overall its my hope that neither F1 or MotoGP cave to the pressure of putting a woman. If a woman should be on the grid, it should be through talent rather than trying to run a sideshow like indycar and nascar have been doing.
