Danica Sue Patrick is a former professional racing driver from the United States who began racing at the age of 10 and earned early success by winning her class in the World Racing Association Grand National Championship three times in the mid-1990s. She is currently one of the most successful women in the history of American open-wheel automobile racing, having won the 2008 Indy Japan 300, the only race won by a woman in the IndyCar Series.
With all that gain in fame, Danica Patrick has also received a lot of criticism throughout her career. However, she has recently been criticized for her sexuality. Many people are suspecting that she is gay after she shared multiple photos on her social media with one woman. So, is she really gay? Well, Let's find it out together.

Shortly after the divorce, Danica Patrick began dating NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. (@stenhousejr). Many admirers appreciated the two race car drivers' friendship, calling it a match made in heaven. The couple began dating in 2013, and she confirmed their relationship with the words, "I have a boyfriend, his name is Richard." Furthermore, the couple had a competitive relationship, with Danica declaring herself to be the superior driver in 2016. Despite their shared love, Danica and her partner split up in December 2017.
After Danica Patrick's breakup with Ricky, She wasted no time in beginning a relationship with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (@aaronrodgers12) in 2018. After confirming their romance in January 2018, the couple garnered headlines. Likely, the couple had been open about their love and had frequently shared many posts together. Their romance was continuing great until July 16, 2020, when Danica's representative announced that the couple was no longer together.
Later, Danica became IG official with Carter Comstock, co-founder of the meal-prep firm Freshly, in April 2021. That was less than a year after she divorced Rodgers. According to a source who spoke to US Magazine, the duo were set up by Beam cofounders. However, their relationship did not endure long, as they dated for a year before splitting up in March 2022.
Danica Patrick's Apparent Sexual Innuendo & Embarrassing Lewis Hamilton Question Makes Fans Cringe!
Danica Patrick isn't winning many fans in Formula 1. Following a very successful racing career, the 41-year-old Wisconsin native has transitioned to television punditry. She is now working for the prestigious Sky network, where she covers the sport for Sky Sports F1. She was right there with Nico Rosberg (@nicorosberg) during today's Hungarian GP Qualifying and even got an opportunity to interview the top three after the session, including an unpleasant encounter with pole-sitter, Lewis Hamilton.

Patrick's chat with Hamilton after he seized pole position from the clutches of Max Verstappen did not go over well with the fans. While it's no secret that the American isn't a fan favorite among F1 fans, her sneaky sexual insinuation combined with an uncomfortable line of questions had viewers seething and unsatisfied with the broadcast.
This was not the only aspect of the interview that irritated fans. Patrick exudes little significance to the sport in their eyes, and her knowledge quota falls short as well. And the strange line of questioning she directed at Lewis Hamilton may not have helped her case.
The question that really surprised F1 fans was about the new Qualifying structure that the sport presented and tested over the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend. During Q1, the drivers all used the Hard compound, Mediums during Q2, and Softs during Q3. And Patrick most likely missed the memo on how Pirelli has historically behaved within the sport.
Patrick asked of Hamilton, "Was there a difference between the soft, medium, and hard tire?" An obvious query that resulted in a slew of people criticizing her on social media. F1 fans were furious at the Americans. She received a lot of heat from the Hungaroring audience, in between her outrageously sexual statements about the 38-year-old pole-sitter and her own Will Buxton moment.
