The former racecar driver will be a part of Sky Sports’ coverage for the US Grand Prix.
Can't wait to have you join us, @DanicaPatrick!

The race will take place at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas on Sunday at 3 p.m. ET. Patrick will join Sky Sports’ F1 team of former drivers Jenson Button and Martin Brundle for the race.
This will be the first F1 race in America in nearly two years.
Patrick, 39, drove both IndyCar and NASCAR, but never did F1 racing. She had one career IndyCar win and was the most popular driver in IndyCar for several years.
