DAMN IT! Beat me to the punch.

Anyway, I'm kind of sad she won't be in Indycar, but I'm happy she will possibly have an F1 ride lined up by 2015 if all goes well.

Bernie won't let her into F1.

It's an unfortunate loss for IndyCar.

From Wikipedia
In 2005, when speaking about IndyCar racer Danica Patrick, he remarked "You know I've got one of those wonderful ideas ... women should be dressed in white like all the other domestic appliances."Ecclestone later called Patrick to apologise, but repeated his comments,before apologising a second time. Earlier, in February 2000, he said that women would never excel in Formula One, stating "she would have to be a woman who was blowing away the boys. ... What I would really like to see happen is to find the right girl, perhaps a black girl with super looks, preferably Jewish or Muslim, who speaks Spanish."

And in 2013 he wanted Danica in F1, so your point is a bit old m8

Danica he wanted because she's such a well known figure. It's a sad fact that in racing women are often valued for their willingness to expose themselves in tv ads than their ability on the track. It's not right, it needs to change, but Bernie seems to be buying in to it.
