Just read this in the paper and he does have some good if fairly obvious points. I just think if he'd have came, seen and conquered then he would have a different view.

Probably a very valid point.

He is right about NASCAR and it's entertainment though, far superior fan package to anything that F1 has offered for as long as memory recalls

In terms of pure racing entertainment, Nascar is second to none.

Agreed

Edit. For anyone that follows the NHRA, there is this sad news about Scott Kalitta.

Re: Montoya Tells It Like It Is.....

the NHS are thinking of offering vidoes of NASCAR races as an alternative insomnia cure round and round and round and round and round and round, out goes the safety car so the telly can go for a break 2 hours later they are still going round and round and round and round and round, dull uterly dull 'racing' only the crashes liven things up a bit.

F1 isnt much better though, but at least they turn right occasionally and use technology from this century rather than the 19th

i may take comments like these more seriously if it was from a driver who could actually hack it in F1 and not a whinger like montoya.

Sorry I didn't realise that video was there on the article, it wasn't when I first saw it yesterday. I don't really agree with showing that type of thing

Re: Montoya Tells It Like It Is.....

I clicked a link to go and watch it. There are a few posted up on YouTube now. I've enjoyed Kalitta's passion for the NHRA, the fact he retired twice and came back time and time again shown that. Sadly, he died at the strip that started his career.

Re: Montoya Tells It Like It Is.....

NASCAR is a boring sport unless its an oval track IMO. Throw too many corners in and it confuses them and the safety car has to be deployed.

Re: Montoya Tells It Like It Is.....

Fair point, but on the whole F1 is far better to watch. I dont mind watching the ovals in NASCAR but thats about it.

Re: Montoya Tells It Like It Is.....

I've tried over and over to get into NASCAR, but i just get fed up with the safety cars all the time.

I know people say the racing is great. All i can say is not the ones i've seen.

I watch only the NASCAR road course races (which is what, two per season?) just to watch Montoya show the good 'ol boys how it's done.

Poor Montoya.....if this is how he felt about f1 then he should have gone to NASCAR straight after Champ/indy whatever it's called.

Re: Montoya Tells It Like It Is.....

Monty's talking from his heart, not his head (as he usually does ).

Plus, after this incident he can hardly think straight anymore … YouTube - JP Montoya goes mad & swears at camera-man HILARIOUS



(I just can't stop laughing when I see this vid! )
