Hah, are you surprised?yeah i remember in road and track that when they switched cars he would have qualified for the daytona 500
He hasn't had the greatest of seasons, competiting with the likes of Schumacher, Alonso, Raikkoden, and not even finishing races could be factors.Hah, are you surprised?
I don't know why anyone in their right mind would switch from F1 to NASCAR, unless there's more money to be had. I just think, anyone that's done any roadcourse racing would be drop-dead bored driving circle track, I know I would be.
<--Falls asleep at 21 yellow flag short track event...
I was a big Monty fan, too. I'm really disappointed with how things have turned out.I'm sorry but I had to flame....I was the biggest JPM fan for the longest time. First with Williams (my former fav team) and then Mclaren.
When he first went to F1, everybody was branding him the next Michael Schumacher. Even Schumy himself admitted that JPM reminded him when he was young. Aside from the first two seasons, he didn't really achive anything aftewards.
The only reason I can think of going to NASCAR is that he'll never win a driver title in F1.
Yup he is. He's not having that great of a season either. He's good, but he can't steer clear of accidents and his car has some pretty big reliability problems.Now who the heck am I gonna root for? Is Jenson Button still around?
I agree, Sato should not be in F1. Honda is wasting their money and resources on him and his Super Best Friends team. As for Speed, I am kind of disappointed. I grew up racing karts with him and I know he is an amazingly talented driver. I'd like to see him drive the A-team Red bull car to see what the difference is between the chassis and the Ferrari V8 and the Cosworth V10. I'd also like to see him stop talking up the race to SPEED befroe it starts, he knows that drivers believe that doing that will "jinx" the race for them. Just my $.02Sato sucks, same goes for Speed, way to rep USA :lol:
Granted, JP might not have been the best, but he still managed to pilot F1 for quite some time, which is one hell of an achievement. F1 pretty much always has been, and to some extent, still is the pinnacle of racing. Period. Why any F1 driver would stoop to the, in my opinion, lowest level of racing (albeit not the one with the least money, that's for sure!) is beyond me.
