When the going gets tough, the tough get going....Montoya is the exact opposite of this personifiable creed. For all his emotion, he was surprisingly brittle...one needs a tough skin to last in F1.

He forgot to add that he is making a boat load of money. A Nascar driver can make or earn 40-50 percent of the purse. In F1 a driver is lucky to get 5 percent of the purse. His relationship with Chip allows him to race in other forms of motor racing and as he said enjoy himself. Something he said he never had in F1. Enjoyment.

Racing should be fun for the drivers as well as the fans. Montoya is and always has been an enigma in all the series he has been involved with. He has settled nicely into US life, his family is comfortable and no-one needs to conform to the stuck up way of life they had in F1 with Williams and McLaren. If racing and life is fun, why change?

but the problem is that nascar is not much of a racing series. it is just going round circles. had he went to v8 supercars, then it would have been worth something. nascar is for fat drunk dudes who are not sober enough to enjoy a real race. at f1, even luca badour will destroy jimmie johnson.

Well JPM ...that is all well and good...except that NASCAR sucks! It is a horrible form of racing PLUS The fans (typically) are from the inbreed, beer drinking, wife beating crowd... really hard to hang out and watch a race with those kind of people! Really, a 75% road course and 25% oval mix would make for a much more intersting NASCAR season!

MrMajokestik... then why is F1 trying to emulate Nascar. Got an answer for that one? F1 is moving fast towards a spec series and 2013 it will almost achieve that goal.
