Like a lot of people, I never heard of Danica Patrick before she came over to NASCAR. But today, someone sent me this clip of Danica crashes in open wheel racing. Geez, what a mess. It made me wonder what's her lifetime ratio of races to crashes. 20%? 40%? Anybody know?

why would you waste a good race car and team on this young lady. Maybe she should look into another line of work.

A question of this type is only valid when you know the number of crashes she has been in that she was the only one that crashed and the number that she specifically cause. Crashes she or any other driver get into that are caused by someone else should not be counted. Based on this criteria I would say that her ratio isn't nearly as bad as Kyle Busch.

When I was a teenager my dad told me every crash I got into was my fault, because I wasn't paying enough attention to avoid it. At the time I didn't believe him. But now that I'm a dad I understand there's some truth to it. Similarly, Danica needs to develop situational awareness.
