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.''
