Consider this: no female driver has ever became world champion in a top racing category, so we can't count on that even though the same logic applies. But how many women have ever got to try their hand in one of the top series, and how many of those have managed to win a race (or rally)? Compare that with how many men have raced in the top categories, and how many of them have won a race?

Most men never become WDC either you know, but that doesn't mean men in general are useless drivers! :)

Also consider that the racing world is probably more open to female racers now than it's ever been. With that in mind I think in time we will definitely see a female champ, but it probably won't be any of the drivers out there today. De Silvestro is the most likely though, I think given the right tools it's not impossible she could challenge for the Indy title. Then there's the next generation, Visser looks promising like I said but there will be many, many others!
