It looks like she said in public what she should have said in private.

She knows her future is driving NASCAR in a hot pink Betty Crocker Tampax Chevy. Indy may be her last chance at being relevant.

Boy, there’s leadership for you. She has a good looking body, but insulting your crew like that is not the way to inspire.

A driver should never draw the line between himself or herself and the crew. It's referred to as a team for a reason.

Danica Patrick is to racing as Anna Kournakova is to tennis. Pretty, but not that good.

"There's no stability or grip. It's just scary, really scary ... It's awful, really awful. I think I'm still shaking."

Pretty stupid talk for a driver. She wasn't referring to her performance in bed was she? lol

If a guy had her driving ability, they'd be racing go carts at the local kiddie park.

There's only one reason she's competing at this level.

Danica Patrick was frustrated. Very frustrated.

Did she stomp her feet, throw a towell, and make a mean face? She's cute when she does that.

“There’s no stability or grip. It’s just scary, really scary ... It’s awful, really awful. I think I’m still shaking.””

Sounds like a tire issue to me.

I think tires are chosen by the track organization & Goodyear.

I think all of the drivers are supposed to be on the same tire. If so- then they have to set their individual car up to the specs of the tire.

No grip at Indy at those speeds IS scary.

I don’t have satellite TV, so I have not seen any of practice or qualifying. Did she even make the 2 qualifying laps?

I think Danica is overrated in any kind of race car. If she was homely she would only be driving to a Laundromat.

Well, yeah, she could have been more diplomatic about it. That said, it may be a team, but she’s the one who gets injured or killed if the car goes bad during the race. The rest of the team? Not so much, necessarily.

As for her face? She resembles an dog.

I agree. Not so much the face comment because it’s not necessary, but this is mostly in jest. She has a cut figure and is not quite as cute in the face, but then I’m not God’s gift to women either, so it evens out.

You’re entitled to your opinion. I’ve never been a conventional person. There’s something very attractive in some women that you can’t put your finger on.

I’m not saying Danica actually fits in that category, but she isn’t a “dog” as far as I am concerned. And I’m not one to buy into the beauty of women broadly considered to be incredibly beautiful either.

Cuteness and the xQuotient goes a long way with me.

While Danica is attractive, that picture is photoshopped. She is not nearly that slender and her legs aren’t nearly that long.

She’s short. When she was a few years younger, I think she may have fit into that photo mold. I have no way of knowing what games were played with this photo if any, but I’m not here to claim she’s everything that photo shows. The photo is appealing, and I’m not put off by it.
