When did she ever say that? Every thing I've ever heard her say, she seems pretty comfortable playing the pretty girl race driver. She's said multiple times that the photo shoots give her a chance to get her image out there and it helps her racing career.
Personally I think she's overrated in her looks as much as her driving, but I don't think she's upset about the attention.
"If Patrick, the former darling of IndyCar, wins today's Daytona 500, she'll likely become the most popular and celebrated race driver on the planet...."I have 100% confidence in her skills and her ability," said Gibson [Patrick's crew chief], who has worked with Mark Martin, Jeff Gordon, Michael Waltrip and Steve Park, among others. "I've seen it just in the two races we did last year. She's got the talent, and she's got the ability, and she's already proven in the Nationwide Series.
"From what I've seen, on the speedway stuff, she definitely gets the respect and people know she's fast."
Not all think that way.
Rochester Hills' Brad Keselowski, the defending Cup champ and Penske Racing ace, for one, said recently he thinks of Patrick as a "20th-place driver."
The "darling" of Indy racing, indeed. Not too many drivers vying for that monicker.
If you grade her on lug nuts, Danica Patrick is the most popular driver with young folks, particularly young girls, at Daytona International Speedway. If Patrick, the former darling of IndyCar, wins today's Daytona 500, she'll likely become the most popular and celebrated race driver on the planet.

She has yet to lead a lap. How is that even possible?

Yes, she led after my comment.
