I would encourage JV to jump to NASCAR, F1 is becoming too dull, and it appears that if you enjoy actually racing your car then your are frowned upon by the FIA. JV and JPM with the other regular NASCAR stars........sounds pretty good to me!!

After watching F1 and Champ Car/IRL for years - I started watching NASCAR about 3 years ago. will never go back to waching anything else - there is no excitment in F1 anymore - the only exciting part is the start after that nothing. NASCAR is 100% excitement from start to finish.

What´s the difference between Montoya and Villeneuve?

Just one!!, Villeneuve already done his job once!

Now, he can do what ever he wants cause he´s already a champion. Good luck

I can't really see these two going around in circles to finish their careers. Could they adjust to the culture of NASCAR?
It remains to be seen if they would be accepted.
Mind you, they did all right at the 500's, especially Jacques. I can't remember if Juan Pablo raced in it at Indy but he does know ovals.
I would say a return to Champ car would liven that series up for sure. There are some hot drivers there.

JV is too old for the fast sport. He is in denial mode. BMW test driver in the first race has shown better performance and potential than him.
NASCAR??? He may submerge into no body as well. If I were him, I quit and stay at home

JV should head off to NASCAR next year...it would do him real good. But lets admit he had a good 2006 while it lasted so hats off to the Canadian.
