Danica Patrick inspects her car during testing for the recent NASCAR Sprint Cup race in Las Vegas.

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) Formula One chief Bernie Ecclestone says he would like to lure Danica Patrick to the sport but acknowledges she would be unlikely to make the move.

As the pre-eminent female driver in motorsports, firstly in Indy Car and now in NASCAR, Patrick attracts a lot of new fans and sponsors.

Ecclestone told the F1 website on Wednesday that "she will hardly want to give up the exposure she has in the U.S. to come here and maybe not make it."

"All the things that people worry about - whether a woman can cope with the G-forces and all that - she has proven that she can."
