"I've had opportunities to take it a step further with Formula One, and I don't want to lead anyone down a path. It's not in my heart to go there. I've explored Europe before. I particularly like to be here and I like my family and I like my friends and I like my creature comforts of my home country."Has the IndyCar Series urged you in any way to stay put?
"Yeah, I'm told, of course, that we want you here. But we'll see. At the end of the day I've got to go with my gut about what I want to do."There has been speculation that Chip Ganassi's team is interested in you, and it has cars in both IndyCar and NASCAR. Does that hold extra appeal for you?
"That's stuff, too, that my agents are thinking more about. I already drive for a great team, so I need to be on a great team no matter what I do. At the end of the day the team has to make sense, the deal's got to make sense, the progression has to make sense. I might race IndyCar and never go to NASCAR at all. I'm not really sure right now. We'll see." LA Times
: Some speculate that the pursuit of NASCAR by Danica has all been orchestrated to get PR for the IRL, especially when she rejects NASCAR for the IRL, which ultimately she will do. She'll most likely go with Ganassi Racing where she can race IRL fulltime and stick her toe in the water on occasion over at NASCAR with the Ganassi Earnhardt team, which will generate all the PR she needs for her career.]
