Guys, I do not understand this thread. Villeneuve and Montoya are stars. I do not know how you can become a star, but if I could bottle it, I would be rich. What sport can allow itself to lose two stars in a row? I know you are excited after the Hungarian GP, but on "normal conditions" this news probably could ellicit more "motivated" posts.
They are being punished by going to NASCAR, let me say. Both have been "expelled" before the end of the season and both were sorely missed in Hungary (under the rain) by some fans, or, at least, me. When has been a driver dropped like this? Can anyone remember?
This means, also, that the american rooster is almost halved, but I guess you won't miss the public at that side of the pond.
Please, analyze that rarely, if ever, had an F1 driver gone to another series because it pays the same
: if Mr. Villeneuve or Mr. Montoya had went to Indycar, nothing would had happened except "retirement" parties in November, 2006. For Montoya, more probably November, 2010, after a "Red-Bull-type career".
Besides, the similarities in character of both pilots and the testosterone levels displayed by both guys, not to mention the over-the-average depth and firmness of their attitudes, paint a blemish future for F1 driving rooster. Specially with some guys on the pipeline that seem like N'sync types.
Sorry, sorry, the devil made me say this last one...
