Patience isn't possible unless you have the time to devote. One can have unlimited patience, but if that individual can only play a 2-4 hours a day that strictly limits his ability to accomplish a lot. Patience is more time then skill, and winning a race with a lesser car is skill (finger(s)/hand(s). Patience more revolves around the endurance events in GT4 or in another game RuneScape. GT4 is a combination of both but as you said having a racing wheel & pedals probably helps a ton lol.
