I sure hope he will consider a come-back in the near future, there's been all this hype about his action at the US GP but actually, that's what racing's about. Watch an IRL race and see how many cars touch and crash whilst overtaking or late-braking. It's all part of racing. And JPM was the only guy that remembered how to race - not just go round a circuit loyally following the bloke in front of him...

Go to youtube.com and do a Juan Montoya search, you'll see a collection of great moves that you just don't see in F1(his move around Shumacher at Spa still has me shaking my head). You'll also see the end of the Michigan 500 in 2000 (when he was driving for Gannasi in CART). It's a great finish,him and Andretti racing to the wire. I was at that race and have been following him ever since. My concern is NASCAR isn't about balls out, constantly pushing your car racing. It's about nursing your tires, finding people to ride with, then race each other the last few laps. I don't know if that will hold much appeal to JPM. Either way I'll be watching.

Im sure he will definitely make a come back.He is definitely a very good pick for any team.
He should be more careful where he goes.If frequencies,temeperament and agression dont match , the there's going to be trouble.
Renault would have been a best team for him considering that the car allows the driver to push a little bit further than the Mclaren ,which gives way with the slightest agression.

Currently the situation is such that most teams believe its upto the engineers rather than the drivers to win the championship and they could gamble on signing cheaper drivers and hence JPM couldnt get a confirmed seat for 2007.
But all that will definitely change with the new regulations coming in and definitely (i am 100% sure) that some team will buy out his Chip Ganassi contract and see that they have the right person at the right place.

montoya will be back in the most popular motorsport in the world (formula 1). I give him two years and then he will be back.

I agree with you guys, JPM has the same drive that Senna had.(senna is my racing hero) There's nothing more exciting than watching a guy trying to overtake a any point on the track, any chance. Yes, it is true that sometimes he would try too much too soon, but no one can deny that watching him race is excting. I've been watching the races this season and yes Hamilton is a very good driver, BUT, is it exciting to watch him race?? Not at all. It's geting kinda boring again. All that money invested, all that engine power, and all you see is guys playing it safe. That's not racing!,, that's just like racing school when you have to follow the pace car at high speed, no passing allowed. Watching go-kart races is more exciting than F1 these days. Well,, go karts are always fun.

winning an F1 title is about being at the right team at the right time. Put Hamilton in a Honda and lets see if he can do the same. Or Schumy on a toro rosso. Kimmi must be kicking himself about now,, 5 years at Mclaren and now that they have the fastest car,, he goes to Ferrari to become the number 2 driver. He's not even a factor anymore.

One thing I like about JPM is that he would drive the wheels off and put up a fight with an inferior engine.
Senna style. I don't think he will be back to F1. That sucks!! and Nascar.. well, I thought this guys were tough.. nope, just a bunch of cry babies.. Rough racing?? they're more like,, no please, don't touch my fenders wah wah wah!!!..

Can't wait for Sonoma. That will be fun to watch.

Good to see some JPM fans and greats views people have . Regarding Hamilton I have followed him for years and he reminds me of Jim Clarke. I miss Montoya in F1 but on certain corners Hamilton's car has a similar language to Juan's- especially on turn in. Had Juan had the input nad support that we know that Lewis has received from the team then he would realised 100% of his talent and speed- he has possibly the greatest raw talent of anyone. He had more than the measure of Kimi in the second half of 2005 when he started to know the car but by then too late. As for 2006 it's possible he is of the mindset that if the car sucks and he is unhappy his performances reflect this and he gets bored: this appears magnified because of what extreme highs he achieves when the car is neutral to oversteer. His poles back in 2002 were awesome and he still holds the record for the fastest average speed over a lap- I do hope he comes back but he has to do what he feels happy with of course - though I question how long he will stay committed where he is- although great on ovals and high speed corners, he loves circuits- especially if they are called Elkhart Lake , Spa, Sepang Monza or Interlagos. I will follow whatever he does though, he is too good to miss- be nice to see him at the race of champions...

JPM is just the best he shows the world how should you race, its all about been agressive, try to push the car to the limit and yes.....get there first...thats racing....not race to be in 3rd or 5th position, he used to race as r.i.p Senna, just get to the finish line first at any cost, even with rain, he is considered the second best driving under rain conditions after Senna.....
SO JPM a king without his trone!!!!

However much I would love to see him back in F1, he won't return.

If Mclaren had put the effort in actually supporting him as they have in Hamilton the results would have been better then Kimi's for the team!!

Unfortunatly unlike Hamilton, Monty never had the loving support of the FIA on his side!!

that fog in the UK got to your brain Rocky ,so we could call you "fog brain " you talking about arguably the best overtaker in formula 1 history ,he will be back after a few years and when he wins a NASCAR championship ,and then he needs to win a F1 chanpionship and them he will become the only driver to ever win championships in every class that matters to anyone ,if you thought he was agressive then, just wait until he comes back from the training couse in NASCAR, only real man race there, no wine sipping there, just a hot dog a beer and and the grill of a stock car up yours if you dont get out of the way..lol..Montoya one of the best race car drivers in the world .......lol

Please don't forget the magical move he made on Schumacher in the tunnel in Monaco. Oops sorry he took out the back of the Ferrari while they were all behind the pace car. Now that is more his style, which is why Nascar suits him so well, he can crash as often as he wants to, take out others and everyone gets excited and sees it as entertainment.

Where do I begin? JPM left f-1 in the middle of the season to go to Nascar because he wasn't happy. He has 4 more years with Ganassi racing he's doing just fine for a rookie and is learning. I have no doubt he'll do well in Nascar he has to learn like everyone else. I have no idea why people focus on the bad things that have happened while he's driving but I can tell you this the good outweighs the bad by hundreds. I think that some people talk trash because of who he is or who they think he is before getting info. to make an intelligent opinion. But then again look at whose making the opinions that says it all. Sorry Redneck Bob I have something for you though.

Hey cowboy speak to the real rednecks, it's just my forum name, not even from the South, or the USA for that matter. Two things true there, I have a funny accent, and I certainly will dehydrate before I drink Bud. So nice try but sorry no cigar. As for the rest Jack left F1 because he was firedby BMW because of lack of performance, a one hit wonder to be honest. One season in the best car on the grid and the rest is history. I have been a F1 fanatic since the 70's, so the idea that I have no idea who he is is rediculous, I watched his daddy race, and when Jack came to F1 it was with much promise, He did well in the beginning, as I said the Williams at the time was pretty much untouchable, so it stood to reason he would win the championship, but even so he was taken to the wire by MS in a Ferrari that was really crap at that time. He then went the remaining 9 odd seasons with out a win, only visiting the podium 4 times too.

While that is not the worst, it is his mouth that has been the real reason why he is an idiot. He has decided to be the "unofficial" slanderer for F1, insulting and commenting on drivers across the board, for their lack of talent, lack of commitment and well lack of anything, personally I think it is based on jealousy. Why jealousy, well because many of the guys he has shouted the odds at have been successful and have accomplished way more than he ever did in F1 so it pisses him off just a little. Certainly the lad has talent, just a huge pity he's such an ass, and it is just a matter of time before he really gets into the Nascar thing, and his true colours will come out, shouting the odds about his fellow drivers. Time will tell.

Cowgirl, lol, Jacques still is a talented driver and that's my point. He won the f-1 championship. The redneck is just a joke, since you have so much humor I'm sure you enjoyed it. So your opinion on Jacques is personal not due to achievements.
