Kimi – ‘I don’t care about Montoya’

Kimi RaikkonenAs reported on DailyF1News

“I don’t care about that really,” ‘ESPN’ quoted the 26-year-old as saying. “It is nothing to do with me, so why should I waste my time thinking about it? It goes like this in F1. People go sometimes. It is quite normal. It can change very quickly here.”

He insisted: “It is hard to say what is the best and the worst (moments). We had some good times and some bad times. That is racing. But that is now past and I don’t need to worry about it or even think about it.”

Exactly my point !! Why the heck are we still running around the whole “JPM’s Move to NASCAR” Saga ?? He quit F1 and joined NASCAR, that the end of it !!!

  1. JPM was never in the same class as KR, but I’m still embarassed for him for quitting and going to NASCAR. I guess he is a loser, after all.

  2. Sylesh says:

    It is ridiculous of Kimi to talk about JPM with such disrespect. After all everybody knows, including the FI fraternity, that JPM is a far good a F1 driver than Kimi. JPM brings that energy into F1 which Kimi just cann’t even think of, let alone doing it with his cold emotions and aggression less driving. Even though Montoya have not won a title, every race lover will miss him in the future races. F1 is not going to be the same without JPM and his presence will be sorely missed .

  3. JPM better than Kimi? That’s the most absurd thing I’ve ever heard. JPM is a swine and a bastard–and he’s not fit to carry Raikkonen’s jock.

    I agree with HAKKIN above. As an American, I am frankly embaressed that my fellow countrymen even bother to watch NASCAR, let alone are devoted fans. As for JPM leaving Formula 1 to drive a NASCAR go-kart, we should all feel embarassed for him.

  5. The Friends of Montoya says:

    As we all know, just a handfull of racedrivers has won races in the big 3
    Indy – F1 – Nascar
    Soon JPM will be among them…

    He also won the F3000 in 1998, Indy series in 1999 and Indy500 in 2000 at his first attempt…

    During the period of Kimi amd JPM racing together in F1, JPM took more points and had a better avarage finnishing position.

    JPM statistics
    Leading: 47 times during 553 laps in 30 Grand Prix with a total of 2728.579 Km

    Points: 307 (Average per start: 3.23)

    KR statistics
    Leading: 46 times during 606 laps in 31 Grand Prix with a total of 2907.632 Km

    Points: 303 (Average per start: 3.18)

    JPM is indisputable on of the best racingdrivers of all time, and counting…

    I agree with the Friend of Montoya, Juan was one of the few driver that brought some exitement to F1, as was seen yesterday monza was pretty boring.

  7. Bryan Cook says:

    It’s good to be able to see the other side of the story as an American NASCAR fan. Great posts! I for one, am excited about the level of talent JPM is bringing back to the states. It’s going to be an exciting 2007 season!
