Fox News: Do you miss racing?

Danica Patrick: I mean, in the simple sense of the word, do I miss racing? No. I mean, there's so much that goes into it. Are there facets of it that I do? Yeah. Are there a lot of facets that I don't? Yeah. But overall, no, I think to myself the schedule is relentless. You know, you're in the same loop of activities and people just endlessly. So every time I'm on a trip or doing something different or going to a concert or, something personal that I'm really interested in, whether it be sort of a self-development seminar, or a girls trip or a trip with Aaron, a group of friends, I think to myself, if I was racing, I would not be here. So I'm grateful for this time now, and I love the transition. I've never really been afraid of that.

Patrick Bruel is recovering from the coronavirus

 Patrick Bruel is recovering from the coronavirus © Provided by Cover Media Patrick Bruel Let the fans of Patrick Bruel be reassured: the singer is recovering well from the coronavirus. Indeed yesterday, the French singer had told France Info to have been infected by the virus. The voice-over performer admitted on air that he was "a little scared at some point" and "really had a bad time". But today everything is better and that's what he wanted to say to his concerned fans.

Patrick will ride her final race on Sunday at the Indianapolis 500. Leading up to her final race on Sunday at the Indianapolis 500, Danica Patrick opened up about her relationship with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and why she is stepping away from the race track for good.

Danica Patrick strolled into Indianapolis Motor Speedway with a sunburn, a surprise gift from an afternoon spent in Green Bay, reading books while lying in the grass with boyfriend Aaron Rodgers. As retirement comes racing toward her , she 's never been more at ease — except for one thing .

Patrick:  Sure, of course. I mean, I watch, it's funny now that I'm on the other side of it and watching races. When you're in it, you know which ones people like to watch and you don't always understand why. So you think, but the Kansas race was great, the Watkins Glen race was great, and, Indy, I'm thinking that's kind of not so great in a stock car, but I get it an Indy car. So you have all these thoughts and perspectives because you're in it, but when you're a spectator, you totally, and even though I did it, I totally tune into all the ones that are the 'popular ones.'

Fox News: Tell us about the perception vs. reality of what we see on TV compared to what is actually going on at the track.

Patrick: I will say that a lot of times things look a little more chaotic on TV than they feel in the car. It's harder to control the car than what you can see on TV, for sure. Controlling the car is something that you're dealing with, I mean, on regular tracks, you're dealing with it on every corner, obviously. But on superspeedways, you're dealing with it in a stock car on the straightaways and even in an Indy car and some of the bigger tracks like the Indy 500. I mean, the straightaways are part of your plan. You're scheming about how to get a run on somebody. So it's a lot, lot, lot more work going on inside of the car than any fan would recognize when they're just watching the race. But those starts and restarts, they're chaotic, but they kind of look worse on TV.

Because of Corona break: Max Verstappen keeps fit with Sim-Racing

 Because of Corona break: Max Verstappen keeps fit with Sim-Racing © Max Verstappen (Twitter) Max Vertappen is keeping fit with virtual races If you can't go to the real race track, then virtual courses have to be used.

After reading only a few chapters Miranda was on the Internet, sure that someone had already made Hamilton’s story into a musical. In less than 2 years, “Hamilton” has become a cultural phenomenon.

She doesn ’ t cry a lot, but she was certainly crying that day, and it was very special.” Patrick said she is unfazed by the criticism about her record, saying Danica Patrick wipes her face during a press conference announcing her retirement from full-time racing at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Nov.

Fox News: Most pro series are holding virtual racing events during their hiatuses. Have you done any iRacing yourself?

Patrick: I'm not a fan of videogames. I think that it's great that they're doing something to keep people entertained, and some people love it. I'm just one of those people that does not love videogames. I remember when I first started in NASCAR, my first crew chief Tony Eury Jr. got me this iRacing kit with the steering wheel and the pedals and the screen and everything, and I think I tried to use it once.

There's no feel to me, even when I've driven to the really legit simulators where you're in a giant auditorium-style room that has screens all the way around it, you’re in a car, and you're buckled in, and it's very, very visual. The seat does move and it has bumps, and you can feel the weight through the steering wheel, but you can't feel it in your butt. So for me, I didn't even like doing that, and those are multimillion-dollar machines.

Fox News: Any chance you’ll race again professionally, maybe a one-off sports car event?

Patrick: I have for a very long time said the words never say never; however, I am in no way seeking out.
