Danica PatrickDANICA Patrick rarely drives her sexy Lamborghini — because it doesn’t have any cup holders!

The US motor sport star says the expensive motor stays in her garage because her beverages spill everywhere when she drives over potholes.

“In the Lamborghini I have to avoid certain roads because of pot holes, and there’s nowhere to put my drink, no cup holder,” she said.

“And I’m not going to lie, it looks pretentious. I used to think it was cool to, like, drive it to dinner. Now? Like I really need to be looked at any more.”

Patrick says she won’t switch to Formula One because she doesn’t like England

“I think it’s not completely realistic,” she said. “I lived in England for a few years — I raced Formula Ford over there – but I really like being with my family and friends, having the creature comforts of the States and everything. I’d never say never, and Formula One I imagine would be amazing, but having fun is important to me and I think the environment of F1 is a little bit cold.

“You don’t see drivers hanging out together. Takuma Sato came to IndyCar [from F1] and he was, like, ‘Everyone’s so nice here’. It’s a much more fun environment, and it’s different again from IndyCar to Nascar stock-car racing [in which Patrick races part-time]. Everyone there is so kind and friendly. So, it [switching to F1] would have to be a unique opportunity.”

    She would never even be given a chance to Race F1. She is not even close to the caliber of driver to compete. The fact the she says , she doesnt like England is just an excuse. Those of us who do understand F1 would like to see her give the respect to the 24 drivers that actually compete in the pinnacle of motorsports, F1.

    I have lived in both England and Italy, and in both countries it is against the law to have anything in your hand while driving except the steering wheel, so they don’t even sell cup holders over there. If you as an American have an extra cup holder you can get a few euro’s for it.
