    ive a funny feeling jaques villeneuve will go very well today. dont ask me why, but high points, maybe even 4th or 5th? hell, even a podium if fisi and alonso take each other out.

    am i the only one who thinks webber if far too overrated? excuses after excuses, whens he going to deliver this promise i keep hearing about? wouldnt be so bad but even newboy nico is killing him regularly. (regardless of nicos talent, webber has years of experience o him, he should not be so far behind all the time)
    and when he does have a good day? how many times has webber run people off the track and crashed into others? i will be gutted if great drivers like anthony davidson and alex wurtz still cant get seats while empty promises like webber take up good seats and do noting with them

    rant over

    Interesting race. Marbles on the hairpin caused some action on the last few laps. My mum thinks that Truli should have his licence suspended as he seems to hold people up a lot. He is the Capt Slow of F1.

    Some days (Mon-Fri & weekends) I wish people on motorways would get their licence suspended for holding others up. Come to think of it A & B roads as well!

    In order for me to get to work in 1 hour I need to average 50mph. Doesnt sound much when 42 miles is motorway, 4 miles at 60mph, 2 miles at 50mph, and 2 miles at 30mph, should be easy. But with all the lane hoggers, site seers and rubberneckers its hard to weave in and out of them quick enough

    Next stop is the scene of the most farcical race of 2005 and all time, Indianapolis. Bernie Ecclestone recently claimed F1 can do without the USA. Question: Will F1 avoid lasts year shambolic 6-car parade. I hope so, race day on Sunday July 2nd on ITV1 at 5pm.

    Forgot I past post no.1000

    on one of the most farcical tracks. the infield is so mickey mouse it is a disgrace it is allowed to be used for F1.

    Leguna Seca would get my vote for US GP

    BIG F1 NEWS!! Juan Pablo Montoya has left F1, the Columbian announced on Sunday he was leaving for the NASCAR Nextel Cup in 2007 but after disscussions with boss Ron Dennis, a mutual agreement was made and Montoya split with the team to get in practice for his next stop in motorsport. McLaren test driver and former Arrows & Jaguar driver Pedro de la Rosa will replace Montoya for the rest of the season as of Magny Cours this weekend, de la Rosa hoping to convince McLaren to sign him as Alonsos team-mate for next season over fellow tester Gary Paffett and GP2 frontrunner Lewis Hamilton. So as Montoya heads back to the States where he made his name before racing in F1 (he tested in F1 before going to the States), heres a run down of Montoyas F1 career.

    it would be nice if Lewis Hamilton progresses with this turn of events. Hes been groomed for a Mclaren role for years now, so it would be great to see JPM leaving giving Lewis a shot. Lets face it, JPM arriving is what set Jenson back for years, so maybe the overated, and frankly annoying columbian can help a british drivers career by leaving the sport.

    I said it when he went to the states from F3/3000, and Ill say it again, montoya is a brute, and has no finese in his style at all. he is a dirty driver, and almost as overated as Webber, in my humble opinion. There are much better drivers ready to take his place, like Pedro, but for the longer term i hope Lewis is given a shot.
