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 !!!

Ron DennisAs reported on

“Juan Pablo is fully contracted to the end of the year and if we so choose he will test and race again, that is our option and no one else’s,” said McLaren boss Ron Dennis .

“I felt if he was focused on having the best end of season, I thought it would be easier for me to take the decision to keep him in the team, and better for him to get a better offer, so common objective was to get the best out of the season,” he explained.

“Obviously that objective somewhat changed when he decided that in 2007 he was going to race in NASCAR so the objectives became different. The appropriate action was for him to cool off and think about his situation until we have a common objective for the remaining races.”

JPM followers must be quiet excited to hear this. But, even if he did came back, will he have the motivation & willingness to win/complete the race ? When Ron Dennis is himself saying that his objectives has changed, then why keep this usless option open ? Obviously they already have promising drivers [lie De la Rosa & Hamilton] who can aptly takes JPM place in the team.

Michael SchumacherAs reported on

“What’s exciting about NASCAR?” Michael Schumacher asked. “I can’t see it, running around in ovals. I just don’t see the challenge in it for me. Personally I wouldn’t do it.”

On Ferrari’s chances of winning in Magny Cours

“I hope we can be as competitive here as in Indy,” began the German. “To be honest, it all depends on the tyres. We have a great car and if the tyres work then we look good, if they don’t then we don’t.”

It is the same fun that one gets while running all over the places, up & down, left & right inside a car where you can’t move your ass if you want to scratch it. But then, who is complaining ?

Jacques Villeneuve
As reported on

Canadian Jacques Villeneuve says he might quit Formula 1 this year and move to the US-based Nascar championship in 2007. It seems likely that Villeneuve will be dropped by BMW Sauber at the end of the 2006 season in favour of Polish test driver Robert Kubica……with no top teams apparently interested in him either……

Villeneuve said at the weekend: “Going to Nascar might not be such a bad career move because it’s the most exciting race series in the US and it’s a very different discipline to F1. I would not consider it a step down. Would I consider a move to stock cars? I would. But I would have to consider my family too as we would have to move to the US.”

That would be a perfect move for you JV! Knowing very well that you can’t be on a F1 podium [only except if 17 cars crash out of a race] and no decent contructor is ready to employ you. Hey and guess what !! You are no longer one of the directors of GPDA !! You resigned .. remember !!

And given your “flying” singing career, you definately are better off flying [hopefully] at NASCAR.
