Danica Patrick has yet to rule out entering Formula One in 2016.

The 32-year-old American currently races for Stewart-Haas Racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series, a team co-owned by F1′s newest team owner, .

“She surely fits the bill,” Haas said in an interview with Formula1.com. “Danica Patrick in one of our cars would be the dream driver.

“She is a woman in a man’s sport – that would attract a lot of attention. She weighs about 50 kilos – which these day sounds fantastic – so indeed she’s got a lot of attributes that would be good to have.”

“I agree that anything is possible,” said Patrick in a recent interview with the Toronto Sun, “but nobody has said anything to me. I am happy where I am at right now as far as racing goes.

“I am just starting to get the hang of (NASCAR) Sprint Cup racing.

“Out of respect for Gene, if he came to me I would certainly listen, but I am almost getting too old to start a third career,” she added.
