well, Montoya was good when he was racing in Indy cars, wasn't he?How much of an F1 car is computer driven today? I only ask because I have no idea but I've seen Ferrari's F1 steering wheel and it looks nuts.
I wouldn't say Montoya has Sucked....he became the fourth(?) driver to win an F1 race, Indycar Race and a Busch Race, and Nextel Race, both of which are NASCARs. He has had two victories this year in his NASCAR career and would have had 4-5 more top 5 finishes if he hadn't been taken out in the last few laps. But boy was there a lot of hate on him the last race he won....the drivers didn't think it was fair that he was bumping up on people every now and then and said that he was lucky for finishing without running out of fuel because 3 people dropped out on the final lap. Personally I find F1 races more exciting that NASCAR...sure, they are going at 200 MPH, turning left, side by side part of the time.....but in F1 there seems to be so much more camaraderie between the drivers, whereas NASCAR drivers are fighting after every single race, Formula 1 has all of the sweeping turns and curves, and is so much harder on the drivers, meaning they have to be able to take the punishment and have to be able to have the skill to begin with. Even though Nascar has many more little crashes, and a couple big ones, I don't find it as entertaining as F1.I have no idea how to compare the driving experience of the two, I do know that a NASCAR can go about 200mph and in last weekends race you would have 4 cars all within inches of each other at these speeds.
While Montoya wasn't the king of F1 his performance in NASCAR so far has sucked. I am not sure what that translates into but something to think about. NASCAR has also started to race on road courses (2 so far).
What I like about NASCAR is it is about racing not the cars. Here is a great article (I just skimmed the first two pages).

I think Schumacher was brilliant with his cheap stunts. It’s what made him a cut above the rest. In NASCAR, you qualify alone, in F1 you do with a crowd. I say good for him, he had the guts to do it and stood by it.I don't think Schumacher was very well liked in F1 among other drivers. He often pulled cheap stunts like spinning out at Monaco during qualifying to screw up the driver that was having a good run.
I agree, I went off him when he crashed into Damon and started slagging him off. I was pleased when Damon won the championship the following year and got his revenge. Although Schuey was disqualified for half of the season, and Damon's Williams Renault was by far the best car that year.Great driving though does not mean he was a class act.
