"Bigoted sexist pig"--couldn't say it better myself for some here that ARE INFACT JUST THAT.
"Keep in mind, Hinch won more races this season than Danica did her WHOLE TIME in the series. As I said, SUCCESS should be more important than IMAGE, BUUUUUUUUUUUT sadly, it isn't...Have a nice day in TX."
As mentioned Hinch lucked into a top ride because a real driver and champion DW was killed in a senseless wreck and Indycar has went downhill ever since. In an article it was reported since Danica left Indycar their overall ratings have dropped 27%. Hinchciff is nothing more then another foreign driver who only got attention for jumping into a famous & hugely popular green car that Danica made famous--not him. Far as his wins go --they drew about as much attention as bugs on a windshield far as hits for Godaddy, mainstream america and media attention goes as NO one cares. Want Proof--an article posted on another forum about Hinch's wins vs what Danica CAN DO for Godaddy stated the Indycar races with Hinch's 3 wins only drew ratings for all 3 COMBINED of only 1.3 million people watching, while Danicas Pole at Daytona this yr increased Nascars ratings almost 3 times that 3.6 million watching her as reported--for that one race-- and Godaddy got over 16 million hits for that--says it all doesn't it?
Bottom line--NO one cares about Indycar or any of its drivers in mainstream America as Danicas merchandise outsold every indycar driver combined, while in Indycar. Danicas fanbase/followers surpass auto racing and her social media followers show that. Hinchcliff has been stuck at less then 4% of her followers or fans for yrs now and his make believe "Mayor of Hinchtown" is a joke of a ghost town---says a lot doesn't it? Even after his wins he didn't generate many extra followers--says it all also. IF No one cares--neither does Godaddy even though they put him everywhere trying to get him noticed. They put him on their home page where they soon lost hits and removed him, and they put him in commercials which did nothing for them & even put Danica with him to help him get noticed which it didn't, and they also put him on guest hosting like Speed center etc and that didn't work either apparently? Even the Mario and Andretti commercials did nothing for them or they wouldn't have stopped--but its only Indycar once again and No once cares-- certainly not enough.
Bottom line---Godaddy thought they could make Hinch somewhat mainstream popular like Danica to get them a return on their sponsorship investment, but it didn't work because no one can make someone popular or whatever it is that draws people to them which Danica created and still has today called the "it" factor--End of story.
