I know it hard to believe, but constant excessive G forces both require and facilitate high physical performance. [..] Can't say for certain, but I do know of a number of F-1 driver's who couldn't cut it at Nascar because the velocity of the car's had such a large impact on their ability to handle said car.


That sounds odd, as Nascar drivers get up to about 3g and it's consistent in direction, whereas F1 drivers get up to about 6g and will get Nascar levels of g-force in rapidly varying directions.

Also, the speed of the two types of racing car is about the same, with an F1 car capable of slightly higher top speed.

Velocity is, strictly speaking, a different thing to speed. It's definitely much more of a factor in F1 because there's far more changing of direction.

The purpose or her speech was to get everyone talking...she knows she's being hypocritical.

Whores always know how to string people along.

Reminds of the girls you see on the beach that wear a G-string bikini, then yell at a guy for looking at her.
You reap the benefits of your looks from everything else Go Daddy, swim suit covers, etc. You don't want to be viewed in a certain way, don't create the image of that view yourself, then complain about it.

I want her to do well because I am female too and NASCAR is traditionally male. But seriously, she should not try to deny that her looks are part of why she is so popular with many male NASCAR fans.

"Athlete?"

Find a mildly overweight nascar driver.

I know it hard to believe, but constant excessive G forces both require and facilitate high physical performance. Perhaps not on the level of F-14 fighter pilots, perhaps moreso as I'm pretty sure most nascar races last longer then the average sortie did during the start of the iraq war. Can't say for certain, but I do know of a number of F-1 driver's who couldn't cut it at Nascar because the velocity of the car's had such a large impact on their ability to handle said car.

I hate to say it, but Patrick has obviously used her, uh, assets to good advantage in her career. Without doing it, she may well not be in the position she is now, because sponsors want a star who looks good in their ads. It's kind of a soft version of sleeping your way to the top, and she really doesn't have much ground to stand on when she complains of being described as "sexy."

"I don't quite understand why when you're referring to a girl, a female athlete in particular, you have to use the word sexy. Is there any other word you can use to describe me?"

D Patrick is a tard. I appreciate trying to break down barriers and all that (minority so yea I get it) but telling people to stop calling you sexy but then doing ads that make her look sexy and the entire purpose of her being in the ad is that she is (somewhat) good looking is tarded.

she is being a tard, is a tard and still sucks at NASCAR.

Compare those results with the results for Michelle Mouton

Also, compare the race results. Michelle Mouton competed at the very top level and won, repeatedly. She raced Group B rally. Group B rally, the racing competition for drivers who were brave enough to try it and skilled enough to survive it. She retired when it was banned because other racing was too tame.

Google image search results for Danica Patrick

Either someone is somehow very busy faking pictures of her or she's busy gaining publicity by potraying herself as sexy, directly contradicting what she's saying.

Which is it? I've barely heard of her, so I don't know.

So...the pictures claimed to be of her in this video are fake?

Drives cars...and poses in her underwear, etc

If you're going to complain about a particular kind of depiction, don't have yourself depicted that way.

She's got a point, though. It's always "sexy". Yes, an athlete is likely to be sexy. After all, they are going to be in excellent health and have an excellent body. But lazy writers go on and on about it with women, much more so than with men.

It does have one good point, though. If I'm browsing for books and I see the word "sexy" in a review comment on the back, I can put it back on the shelf and be fairly sure I'm not missing anything I'd want to read.

Danica Patrick...she's that mildly successful racing driver who's only famous because she's female, right?

I'm pretty chauvinistic at times, but this guy was over the top. Of course, that's standard behavior when working for FOX and totally accepted.
