Former excellent alpine skier Lindsey Vonn claims that Red Bull offered her a seat in Formula  years ago, but she refused, because she didn’t want to commit to not getting pregnant during her contract.

The American has won the World Cup four times in her rich career, and also became an Olympic champion in skiing. Vonn ended her two-decade-long skiing career due to an injury, and recently revealed that she was seriously considering a racing career.

“I liked it” , revealed Vonn when she tested a Formula Renault 3.5 car on the track in Spielberg at 2016. “But I had a tendency to go into corners a little too fast.”

“I thought I couldn’t break this car because it cost few million dollars,” revealed Vonn.

I was thinking about crossing and went to Formula 1. I couldn’t do that because they wanted me to commit for three years and in that time you can’t do anything, not even get pregnant. Consequently, I rejected the offer.
