Dennis doubts women to race in Formula 1 any time soon 19 June, 2013 Ron Dennis McLaren supremo Ron Dennis has played down expectations that there could be a female driver on the Formula 1 grid in the near future. Williams test driver Susie Wolff is pushing for a super license and expecting to participate in next month’s young drivers’ test at Silverstone. Spaniard Maria de Villota was Marussia’s test driver last year before her horrific Duxford crash. Dennis was asked this week when he thinks F1 will see a female driver on the grid once again. “I don’t think it will happen soon,” he is quoted by La Repubblica. “There are some sports that are difficult from a physical point of view for women, and F1 is one of them.” McLaren’s lead driver Jenson Button, however, insists it is “possible” for women to race in F1. “There are a couple of women racing in Nascar and Indycar, have actually won races,” he said. “The big issue is that I don’t think women are given the opportunity at an early age.” “It is a very demanding sport, very specific training and taking time to get race fit. I personally think it’s possible,” added Button. (GMM) Subbed by AJN.
