Let's put this in the proper perspective. She raced Formula Ford in Europe for three years with one 2nd place finish and no wins to show for her efforts in three seasons. She won one IRL race in 2008 only because everyone had to stop for fuel but her. Is she good for the sport? Of course she is...Is she an exceptional talent? Hardly.

She also finished third in the points in a very competitive Formula Atlantic series and sixth in the points in Indycar at the end of the 09 season. Plus she had a third at the Indy 500. Not too shabby. But you're right, she hasn't shown to be exceptional.

She had a great car. She went from 3rd to 8th in a half a lap on the last lap. She had no clue what to do...
To her credit, she stayed out of trouble and got a respectable finish.
