Danica talks Blur, long weekend at Long Beach, Stewart's influence
SI.com chatted with IndyCar darling
The whole field is covered by a second, which is like, what? A blink. It's so, so, so close and tight it's probably twice as hard as it used to be. There are so many good race car drivers in the IndyCar Series now, especially on road courses because we've become primarily a road course series. It's kind of surprising because we just started it. Only five years ago, when I came into the series, there were only three road courses on the schedule. So things have changed a lot but you just have to raise your game.
So the people who are close to me are the people I try to learn from and listen to. And then having good people around you -- my husband, my family, all the people that work with me -- they're all important.
But there are still ways to learn how to become better than everyone. But I think just playing the game and driving the car around the track, it's not that hard. It also allows you to do other things, like boost power-ups, and there are power-ups that fix your car and there are power-ups that blow up other cars.
And if I had to pick three people, maybe I'd just pick my three teammates.
