Danica Patrick is not like other race car drivers. The new issue of Shape magazine surely proves that.
In a dazzling bikini shoot, Danica tells – and shows – how at 5-foot-2 and 105 pounds she competes with much larger men in a sport that demands strength to control the race car and endurance to get through five-hour races.
But she's not all business. In an exclusive video interview for Shape she names two celebrity males who make her engine run a little faster - Twilight's Robert Pattinson and Leonardo DiCaprio!
Watch Danica's video interview and you'll also see scenes from her bikini cover shoot for the new issue of Shape.
Her workout secrets include running and upper body strength exercises. During racing season she sticks to a high-protein diet with a lot of complex carbs and starts every morning with a three-egg-white omelet, a bowl of homemade oatmeal with cinnamon, flax meal, brown sugar, and a scoop of peanut butter on the side.
Clearly she's all business at the race track but watch the video to hear what makes her nervous, how she keeps her focus and her reaction the day the police pulled her over and gave her a speeding ticket!
