    JPM was the subject of a planted press corps "joke" during a planned media day.

    After asking bizarre questions and then taking phone calls, ignoring him,
    JPM left for the rest of the day!

    It's on SPEED TV's site.

    I am embarrassed to be living in Australia!

    That went too far and I appologise to Montoya. Where was the humour in that debarkle.

    I felt the same way...the original question they asked him about "how will juan feel when juan wins the formula juan race that is number juan for the year" or whatever they said was very funny...they just took it too far.

    Jim,

    I would have to agree with you on this one. A racer must be thicked skinned. JPM has proven that he does not first with the "You broke my head" incident and now this.

    JPM can count his blessings that he does not race motocross or supercross, as his competition would eat him alive with never ending pranks and jokes.

    As for this weekend..... May the rest of the grid be Red with envy.... FORZA FERRARI :)

    Seeing him loosing his cool so easily I wonder what is going on in the cockpit under that helmet when somebody cuts him off? Blind rage?

    vince 308 is following me around with the "thumbs down" sign!!!!!


    Vince, a good team keeps it's eye on the competition!!! :)

    JPM is an example of an immature personality IMO. I was not a big Schumi fan at first but have come to admire his savvy behind the wheel as well as his mental abilities involved in running a race.


    Let's see, how many racing trophies do YOU have on the shelf??? LOL!!!!

    Psk, do you have a link or did you see it???

    SPEED quoted Williams team sponsor Alliance as having all kind of guests on hand that were disappointed! That kind of stuff could get a driver to the unemployment office ahead of his time.

    Last time I checked, it's the sponsors that pay the man!

    The weird thing about this is, that the joke allegedly was organized by the sponsors. Obviously they thought JPM has more humour, than he has.

    The guy really seems to be lacking some social skills. No humour, overreacts big time to that camera man incident and did another strange thing at Goodwood last year: He was there on Saturday and rushed big time from his car to his motor home. No time for autographs, no time for even a friendly hand gesture to the fans (I was one of them on site). That might not seem strange in the F1 world on a race weekend, but this was Goodwood, where you can litterally hang out with Phil Hill as well as contemporary F1 drivers.

    Something is missing in JPM's personality. Sad to say.

    Did you see Niki Lauda quoted in Autoweek??

    He was talking about the new stars and signing autographs. To paraphrase, he asked "Why are they afraid of fans? They are just people, I signed f_____in autographs, no one ever hurt me!" LOL!

    Montoya owes his hot bi___ wife to a fan, who sent her to get... his autograph!... because the guy was embarressed to ask for it!!

    Exactly...... follow the money, honey!!

    Although watching the "camera to the head" video, it seems she's having to WORK for it!!!! In addition to the horizontal time! LOL

    This guy's ego needs it's own motor coach.

    Did you guys see her reaction on the tape with the head bumping incident? Looks like she has a brain and knows what's about to happen: She is trying to calm him down and covers his mouth with her hand so he doesn't embarrass himself even further. What a girl!

    Oh and did I mention, that I stalked both Williams drivers in the F1 Paddock and did get Ralf's sig, but not JPM's?

    Go figure. I'm starting to get the sinking feeling, that Tifosi69 is correct in his assessment.

    That's putting it lightly. I can't stand him anymore.He and Ron Dennis should get along well they both seem to have the same personality.
