    Nicky, not everything has to be right. A society in which everything has to be right is unliveable. You'd be in prison just because you killed a fly. Hey, it isn't right to kill a fly!

    Anyway Montoya didn't really impress me. The whole weekend he was slower than R Schumacher. The one that did impress me was Alonso. He drove his Minardi to the finish and he wasn't last, that's like a miracle knowing that the Minardi uses an engine dating from 1996-1997 and that the car had to be built in less than 6 weeks. That kid does have talent and he's only 19, while Montoya is already 26 or so (correct me if I'm wrong). Villeneuve was also this huge supertalent and was world champion but he wanted to do the same as M Schumacher did, as in going to a team which wasn't going well with the goal of bringing it to the top. While M Schumacher succeeded in this (you must know the success of Ferrari is a big part thanks to Schumacher, as he attracks sponsors because he can win a races in not so performing cars).

    Montoya has to proove a lot, he can always go back to CART. Hey Zanardi was also a CART champ, but what did he do in F1?

    Thumbs up for M Schumacher, Ferrari, Sauber (hey they've got their two cars within the first 6) and Alonso.

    Lets face i M. Schummacher is (at this point in time), and without doubt a better driver than anyone else on the F1 circuit...atleast he has the best car/driver combination (obviously).
    But i think people like Montoya do show alot of talent, he is obviously not yet competing for the drivers championship but none the less he looks good. I reckon if his engine hadnt blown-up he would have finished in 4-5. And as we all know thats in the points..which is marvellous for a first F1 appearance.

    Just my 10cents worth!!!

    Nicky, I work at Lewis Hamiltons dads IT consultancy as the in-house web designer so I look after Lewis' site as well. Him and my brother are very good mates. We're looking at 2001 in karts at the moment but no definite plans after that. I think he should stay in karts as long as possible, I think you need to go to F3 to see a comparable standard.

    edited to say yes it was the suspension

    Sounds great! I think Lewis has got a wya to go but he has great potential. I am following his career with great expectations. I am sure he will make the right decisions though as he has great friends around him

    hehe cheers Nicky. Round my house we're already talking about getting loans to go and watch the 2004 Aussie GP, and don't even ask how much Ladbrokes have had off us...

    By 2004 I am hoping to have a job in either Australia or Canada!

    Are you going to Silverstone? Maybe we can meet up!

    I think this year I will probably be hanging around Copse!

    Boo! F1? It's all about NASCAR! At least in America, anyway.

    You would never say that if a McLaren whizzed past you, it is like nothing else!

    If you've seen an F1 car in the real world (so not on TV or so) you'll be in love immiditely. They're pieces of art!
