A new concept for a racing driver

In these days of new ideas one should not overlook Danica Patrick, who has led the way for women racing drivers in America in recent years. Danica has now achieved something that no racer before her has ever achieved - appearing in Sports Illustrated's annual Swimsuit Issue, which hits news-stands this week. More than 69m people are expected to read the special issue and it is estimated that around 250m others will view photo galleries on the magazine's website.

A four-page spread in Sports Illustrated features photos of Patrick that were shot at Singer Island in Florida by photographer Ben Watts. A full 44-photo gallery is available on the Sports Illustrated website.

Not even Michael Schumacher did that!
