nothing to do with talent or planning at all. just good luck.
Wow, you really know nothing about racing, do you? SHE is in control of AFR and following the fuel strategy that every team has to use every race. She can lean or richen the mixture, and control fuel consumption with her right foot.
Do you know what percentage of wins in professional racing are won by fuel strategy? Alot more than you might think. Including the last Sprint Cup race that Jimmie Johnson just won on a fuel gamble by his crew chief Chad Knaus last weekend.
But it'* ok for JJ, just not Danica, right?
