    Yes, & since this is a prememptive move by Mac

    to force Williams' hand, I think FW will pay him 6mm to sit out 2004.
    He won't like it...but the greater good of the team (data, innovation) will be the prevalent thought.

    That said, since all the good young drivers are inked to long term contracts beyond '05...& since BMW is keen on Marketing they want a German driver & some1 for their most Important market (USA) & with the Canadian GP back in the fold...Jacques will be back!

    Losing the Columbian hurts BMW's marketing purposes in the West, that's why Jacques (while not a PR darling) helps alleviate some of the marketing loss that goes w/ JPM.

    Just me wishing out loud...

    JV stanks...the worst possible option. He has everything Montoya does, EXCEPT the speed.

    I think letting JPM drive in 2004 would be a good idea. He's not going to change his style,he's going to go balls out for the WDC.

    Re: it\'s the little things....

    We'll agree to disagree. Though, when it comes to marketing commodities Montoya is one of the best. Despite his obnoxious personality his personal line of products is only second to Schumacher in success and he has a large and devote following, albeit largely Columbian. McLaren is a corporation and I'm sure he'll be get everything he needs...and my prediction is that he'll be faster than KR.

    Yeah, I know. I was just giving charisma value. As for the whirlwind PR events that the drivers must attend to, JPM did pretty decently with the "swapping places" event.

    Re: I wonder if they are trying to pull an earlier ...

    both and dumb and stupid would be an unprecedented accomplishment. He's a driver and not the brightest one on the grid at. I'm not suggesting he's stupid, but he's not an engineer or someone who strikes me as having the capability of understanding a language he's not been taught and then relaying it for the benefit of another team.

    I understand what you mean now. Does this hurt him at Williams and would you say that MS is the best at understanding the car and communicating information to the engineers? I've heard that he spends a lot of time with the engineers and gets into the fine details of how, what, and why with the car.
