Danica Patrick extends Andretti stay

Danica Patrick may not be a household name in the UK but she came to the fledgling Autoblog website's attention for the first time a few months ago when she was revealed as one of the celebrity faces in the 'Body by Milk' campaign in the United States.

Since then - and purely because of our love for all things motorsport - we've kept a close eye on the fortunes of the IndyCar Series driver and even had hopes she might be one of the drivers lined up for the USF1 team that will take its place on the 2010 grid.
