I'm going to settle this one right here and now, but first you need to watch the infamous videotape: This 36-year-old Venezuelan driver made her IRL debut in 2007 and has no wins or poles, but a top finish of ...

Danica is average at best. Her record as a driver wouldn't rate a comment if she were a guy. She is lucky Duno didn't bitch slap her.

This list of athletes, race car drivers, actors and musicians who were good at their game and made plenty of money in the absence of fame is very long.

Fame is not a blessing, doing what you love and getting paid for it___now, there is a blessing!

Just like Milka said, Danica knows she can push the guys around because none of male drivers would dare retaliate. Too bad Danica got a towel in the face instead of a fist.

Chris Olds!, You are obviously just another one of these biased pro-American columnist! It's quite obvious when you distinguish the two by writting "This 36 year old Venezuelen driver" and "This 26 year old Wisconsin born driver", What the hell does the place of origin of either driver have to do with anything at all?, And then you go on to bash Milka Duno who in my opinion looks way hotter in her racing uniform than Patrick! What an idiot! Get a life already fool!. Duno is not as good a race driver as Patrick, but Patrick isn't all that great either! Admittedly I was one of those Danica ban wagon fans cheering her on at the 2006 Indy 500! But she has only one win in more than 50 races now and as I rememer it wasn't even a convining well deserved win either! as I recal, she was running between 6th and 12th durring most of the Motegi race and was still in 8th place with two laps to go! then all of the front runners pitted and the only impressive thing she did was conserve her fuel the best and make the pass on Helio! That's about it! I actually liked Danica at first, but at this point she is just anoying! She always seems to talk down to people like she is a Highway patrol officer, and seems to enjoy confrontations!

I agree with you Dave! I have read Chriss Olds's articles before, and many of them seem to share a common theme to them. This guy is an unbelievable idiot and jack ass who has absolutely no business at all writting articles for any respectable publication anywhere! I only wonder if he has any clue at all of what a complete idiot he sounds like when he writes something! How utterly pathetic a man he is!; "Get a life already" is right! Really!!!

Wow! You really try to paint a picture of Duno being some kind of loser! What you forgot to mention is that Milka started her racing career at the age of 24, after having already achieved a great deal acadenicly, holding a Masters degree in (Organizational development, Naval Architecture, Martime business and Marine Biology. She has also been a model, and has prior experience as a naval engineer. She has competed in many different types of racing including the American LeMans series, The Venezuelan GT Championship and Porsche Supercup and an open wheel series in Europe as well. She is highly intelligent and charismatic as well as beautiful, She has raced in only 15 IRL races compared to Patricks 59, and was one of only two rookies to race in the 2007 Indy 500, and she is doing all of this with one of the smallest and under budgeted teams in the IRL! Compare with Danica Patrick who has been focused on one type of racing since she was ten years old and catching rides with top power house teams such as (Rahal Letterman) and (Andretti Green). Milka Duno is just trying her best with her hands very fool at something completely new to her, and I'm sure that she didn't appreciate it when Patrick came up to her angrily to complain to her while Milka was already frustrated with her own performance. Remember that Milka is still relatively new to the IRL and this kind of racing and has her hands full just trying to qualify an uncompetive car with one of the smallest race teams in the series. So for you to gather up these deceptive little facts about how much a Danica Patrick item goes for on ebay compared to a Milka Duno item is just pretty low if you ask me! I duno who the more fascinating Woman in the IRL is, And her name is not Danica!

Hell yeah! Besides for that Milka has always been gracious with the fans and at least from seeing her at the banquet she was soft spoken and stayed until the fans left. She's trying I see not a thing wrong with that, the IRL coaches are in charge of putting who they want on probation or giving out the licenses so if they want her out of the car it's up to them. Until then she's out there end of story and I think she is on probation still. Bottom line, Go Milka!

Hey did you see how to block the skittles so you never see them again? Right click on the skittle then go down to block topix something from cache you'll never see another skittle again! I saw it on Mindys thread how to do it. The trolls will have a breakdown over it but just like they always do find another outlet to release their shortcomings. The point is the nutcases such as what we have here want you to see them and I wont ever again! Ha ha.

Has Duno EVER finished in front of Danica?

I don't think so.

Has Duno ever won a race on a major level that did not require a co-driver?

No.

Has Patrick?

Yes.

I do not think an arguement on ability can come out with Milka on top. I do agree with many that Danica is a bit of a drama queen. Note that there are many drivers in the IRL who tollerate Duno, but do not step to her, just as they do not step to Danica.

Reason?

What purpose would that serve? Better to go to Brian Barnhart and complain to somebody who can actually do something about it. The IRL mandated that Duno not even attempt to qualify at Richmond last year after two practice sessions found her almost a full two seconds off the pace.

Danica qualified in the top 15. No problem.

Ms. Patrick has an annoying habit of getting in other driver's faces. She does so knowing full well that nobody would ever lay a hand on her. It was nice to see that Duno realizes she does not have to adhere to that unwritten rule, but make no mistake that Duno is really out of her league at the IRL level, and that Patrick had every right to be mad at her incompetence.

She just should have kept it to herself.
