Most likely! If my car was vibrating all to hell like his evidently was, why was he hauling ass like a dummy? Should've taken it easy with a problem that big and tried to nurse it back to the pits.

If he can hit the pace car, he will have ran into everything!

In 37 years of watching this sport, I have never seen anybody run into the track maintenance truck.

Moreover, Montoya failed to adapt to the cars that were provided for him.

Entering his sixth season, in 2006, it was evident that Juan Pablo Montoya had not developed into a title contender. In particular, after five full seasons, the necessary consistency never materialized. However, he often challenged for race victories and was voted top Latin American driver at the Premios Fox Sports awards in 2003 and 2005
For some reason I vaguely remember the last straw involving him wrecking a team mate or something.

he US Grand Prix also brought further disappointment to Montoya's season. An 8-car crash on the first corner saw him retire from the race, yet again taking no points. This crash also involved team-mate Räikkönen, and as one of the main instigators of the crash, this cast further doubt upon Montoya's future in Formula One.

Montoya's Formula One career effectively came to an end on July 9 when he announced in a public press conference from the US that he had signed a contract to run in the NASCAR series from 2007. On July 11, 2006, McLaren-Mercedes announced that Montoya would stop racing for the team with immediate effect. This ultimately confirmed Montoya's exit from F1. However, in the press conference on July 14 at the French Grand Prix, Ron Dennis stated that Montoya was still under contract with McLaren-Mercedes and he would remain in contract with the team until the expiration of the deal. Following further speculation that he could start racing in the NASCAR series as early as 2006, Dennis publicly offered Montoya an early exit from his contract with McLaren-Mercedes, provided that he resigned from receiving any payout to terminate his contract.[5][6]

He was always controversial in F1, but he left on his own accord while still under contract to McLaren (as Wiki states).

I liked his brashness and aggressive driving in Formula One. As stated in the Wiki article, it reminded me of the 80's F1 - balls out, everybody racing to win at nearly all costs. Yup, didn't fit the new-style boring, boring, money-focused F1.

When I heard JPM hit the drying vehicle, I wondered if Michael Schumacher had a part-time gig as a track worker in Daytona. JPM's best screw-ups always seemed to involve the rear end of MS's car.

So.... is there anybody here who didn't immediately think of the Days of thunder pace car scene?


All I can say is THANK GOD it wasn't Danica that piled up the safety truck. The interwebs might have actually imploded.
