Details: Blur seems like it would be a piece of cake for a driver like you. Could someone who's bad behind the wheel be good at it?
Danica Patrick: I'm sure. Like, one of those geeky gamey people. I'm sure they know how to play all those games—and they might get into a real car and be like, "Uhh uhh uhh!" So I don't think you have to be a race car driver.
Details: How will you prepare for the Indy 500? Do you have a pre-race ritual, like wearing your pajamas insideout?
Danica Patrick: No, I don't. I like to keep it normal. I do the same thing I do every other morning. I try to relax as much as I can. It's hard because I get very nervous.
Details: Do you have a pump-up song that really gets you in the zone?
Danica Patrick: "Eye of the Tiger." No. I don't listen to music. Actually, the worst thing you can have is a song in your head out there. You're kind of singing it, you know, and you're like, "Drive the car! Don't be fuckin' singing Mickey Mouse right now."
Details: Is there an "Indy" style?
Danica Patrick: It's European, I would say. Tight, straight-leg jeans, fitted shirts. Prada shoes and Dolce & Gabbana jeans. It's kind of casual, but Euro.
Details: So pretty different from NASCAR.
Danica Patrick: Ohh yeah. I'm more Indy style than NASCAR style.
Details: What are the biggest fashion mistakes that men make?
Danica Patrick: Not having a style. I'm doing my best with my husband. He's a man's man. His gift for Christmas last year was for me to take him shopping. I bought him, like, vests—he still hasn't worn them—and I bought him a couple of cardigans, cool Alexander McQueen shirts, just stuff that he wouldn't get on his own. I think guys need to step it up a little bit. I think a man should be able to wear a pink shirt. You don't have to be gay to dress well.
Details: I read in Sports Illustrated that you have a crush on Rob Pattinson. What do you think of the photos from his Details cover shoot?
Danica Patrick: Do you have it? [Long pause while she flips through the story] Oh my gosh. He does look pretty good. Holy crap. I didn't know you could show boobs here.
Details: Are you into Twilight?
Danica Patrick: I'm obsessed. I've read them all. They did a good job of casting the movie—I mean, Rob looks the part. But I think nothing will ever compare to our own imaginations about, you know, perfection and . . . Dude, they are full on nude, like, they had to wax themselves! [Borat voice] Wah wah wee wah.
