Danica or Michael?

Danica Patrick will don fenders in 2010, joining NASCAR part-time.

Danica goes NASCAR. Schumacher returns to Formula One. Coincidence? Both NASCAR and F1 will benefit from such high profile names joining (or rejoining). The fans will eat it up. TV ratings, ticket sales and merchandise sales will be up. And let’s not forget about ad revenue. I ‘m not saying that NASCAR or F1 are responsible for Danica and Michael becoming the stars of their sports but I am sure they both hand their hands in it – at the very least making it as easy as possible for them to go racing. Why else would they make these moves – money or ego perhaps?

How about Danica and Michael’s competitive drive. Neither racer needs the money but they both seem to crave the limelight and the thrill of racing, who can blame them really. Racing is an adrenalin filled sport and to have the opportunity to race at the highest levels of motorsport is every racers dream. For Michael and Danica living the dream is what racing is all about.

Shuey makes his return to F1 in 2010.

Who do you think will have the larger impact on their series?
