    True:
    He's also been talking about what a 'victim' he is:
    I can't believe anyone would be willing to give him a drive, unless he has information on them too!

    It's in the Camping World Truck Series - hope he does well.

    I can't imagine him being received well by the fans. I mean, especially if they caught wind of the rumors regarding his "other activities."

    Why does this remind me of "Talladega Nights"? I wonder if Piquet Jr's car sponsor will be Perrier?

    He's way too good for Nascar, his results in F1 don't show it, but his GP2 and previous records do. I want to see him driving again, just for the drama.

    Varsha's comment was classic. Something to the effect of "proving once again F1's importance as a stepping stone into Craftsman truck racing"...
    Occasionally he hits the bullseye.

    Yeah poor Pickit.
    His big mouth sank Flavster and Symonds but MUCH more importantly ING's sponsorship and thus probably Renaults F1 efforts next year.

    Its all about you Junior.

    ...hmmm let's see, what kind of $ does he bring to the truck series?
    My guess... even if his test goes horribly wrong is he will be driving a truck.

    Thing is NPJ ratted on Flav for firing him off, however he did tell the truth.
    So I could understand a team for not hiring him because he was a crap driver, but that should be it...but it won't because he is not a real popular man in F1 right now.

    Because, in other words you could say if a mass murderer was a half a sec faster than FA he could get a ride in F1.

    I think his sponsor will be "Really Thin Pancakes."

    Being a "jr" he will fit right in.

    How do you say "Boogity" in Portuguese?

    Why? He cheated, then when he got fired he wanted revenge (IMHO) and confessed. You like cheats and turncoats?

    Yes. What did he miss?

    I hope he receives a very hostile reception at any racetrack he visits. Also if I was a driver I'd be pretty upset at having to share a track with someone who admits to crashing on purpose.
    He's posted some pics on Twitter: http://twitpic.com/kinbb

    I can't understand it? Surely the team could find another decent driver without his reputation?

    Some guys should chill with the hostility, nothing bad is going to happen to him.

    It all comes down to his driving abilities now, if he is good he will succeed otherwise he will flop and he will have a short racing career. Big deal.
