    One of my favourite Sato memories is him taking Alonso for position at the Canadian GP at the last corner, the Super Aguri was doing a great job against Fernando's McLaren.

    Ah found the clip!

    That was a crazy race, and all credit to Sato, but Fred had damaged his car on the first lap. That race was a huge cluster f@#k, including a lurid crash by Kubica. All race strategies went out the window. After four safety cars Sato pitted from fifth with 15 laps to go, and cut through the field came back to sixth on fresh rubber after falling to 11th. .Sato also finished ahead of both factory Hondas, and also passed Kimi, and Ralf. With all the problems he had it was a miracle that Fred brought that ride home in the points

    Alright McJPM

    “It’s a lot of people out there,” Montoya said. “It is weird because you go out there and you get the announcement then you have a picture and then you’ve got like 15 minutes and then you walk to the car and you get in and you start. It is so many people around you. I think that’s a little bit hard for him from what he is used to in Formula 1 and he has been doing that for a lot of years. We started the same year together when I was there in F1, so he’s been doing it for a long time. It’s just you have your own space and people really respect your space and here no, the fans, the sponsors, everybody are there and everybody wants a picture and you’ve got to please them."

    Jaun knows he has been there. Reallllly looking forward to this race!
    My home-boy Jimmie Johnson said:
    “For me, no, my window has closed,” he answered emphatically.
    That doesn’t mean it always was closed for him.
    “I was looking into it seriously years ago,” Johnson said. “Then Chani (Johnson’s wife) just kind of worked out a deal.”
    The deal was that Johnson could pursue it as long as the married couple did not have kids.
    So the Indy 500 window officially closed for Johnson in 2010 when his oldest daughter, Genevieve, was born. Johnson’s second daughter, Lydia, was born in 2013.
    “Pre-kids, I couldn’t get it done,” Johnson said. “Until IndyCar decides to put some kind of roof on their cars or protect the driver’s head, it’s just, from our family discussions, it’s out of the question.”
    So this year, as in every past year and every year in the foreseeable future, Johnson will simply watch the Indy 500 like any other motorsports fan. He did say that he thinks the addition of Alonso to the field makes it much more interesting.
    Risky business it is!

    Yeah, I mean no! I'll be watching on tv. A little more interest for me this year.
    I see your boy Jacques has thrown a little gas on the fire:

    I take it you don't agree ?
    The Hulk deems gladiator Zo crazy for this , and I haven't noticed you ripping him any new holes .

    You goin' all soft and squishy on us , Taz-man ?

    JV's always great for a good quote .
    That's clearly why they hired him .
    I love it .

    Hulk, and Rogro responded to an announcement and said they wouldn't do it, just like Danny boy said it was good. Jacques had to put the whole field into this Rossberg, Alonso category. It is not that simple, yet easy to say when you are not active in either series, thus easy to be controversial, but who cares?

    Spanish daily AS.?

    Anyway I think it is a great move, but it only happened because the McHonda sucks so bad. And Baggy for what it is worth, I'm not interested in the shit-talking going on around the race. Just the actual race is entertainment enough for me.

    Just Yankin' yer chain , buddy .

    But JV has been both places , with a WDC and an Indy 505 win , so he's got two-thirds of what Zo wants , and a second place in the other third .
    Thus , he has an opinion that is worth hearing .

    He really only burned the two Nicos , and it was in direct response to the suggestion that it wasn't a good idea .


    I can't wait to see how he does .

    Sadly... I'm a huge fan of Alonso, but he should not have left McLaren at the end of 2008, should not have left Ferrari at the end of 2014.... bad moves.
