  • Montoya to McLaren

    Based on the quotes of Sir Frank I have read, it seems like McLaren wants Montoya pretty bad. If that happens, who gets Montoya's spot at Williams? I'd like to see Villeneuve get it.

    ...anyone other than Villenueve IMO.

    Trulli, Alonso, Fisichella even Button all deserve a shot in my book.

        I think Heidfeld would do a good job.

          MPM to McLaren Won't happen IMHO, and JV will never get that seat after this season.

          If it did happen, I'd be surprised if it was Heidfeld--nothing exciting happening there. I bet Fisi would offer to do the job cheap.

            It looks to me like the Williams cars may well be the best cars in F1 over the next few years. If a Williams seat opened up it would be interesting to see the scramble to try to get it.

              Alonso would be my first choice, but he's going to Ferrari. (My fearless prediction, no facts). Webber would be good, but not as good as Montoya. Budding superstars... Massa? DC was there once and didn't do much, so a swap is probably out of the question.

                I doubt that Williams will let one of the top 3 drivers in F1 slip away to one of their most heated rivals.

                Franky's got the money in the bank to make Montoyas future a happy one, and a Williams one.

                  I think, based on past history, that the only way Montoya will leave Williams after this season is if he wins the WDC.

                    Actually, to stay in historical perspective........he would have to win the WDC at the end of his current contract and demand more money than Frank is willing to pay.

                      Villeneuve had his shot and now he is going to be kicked out the bottom of the food chain at BAR; that should do his Ego some good.
                      The transformation is complete. The Indy 500 is the only IndyCar race that matters.

                        Past history aside (the contract dealings of Nigel Mansell & Damon Hill) I think Williams would be crazy to let Montoya go.
                        Giancarlo Fisichella has spent enough time in F1 purgatory to merit a shot in a top-notch ride like McLaren...

                          Montoya will finish his contract at Williams......win the 2004 WDC......then go to McLaren and drive Newey's solid MP4-20 in 2005.

                          Just a guess.......

                            Will that be his second or first title?

                              Good question, Joe.

                              The puncture that vacated Michael's podium finish lost the cushion that would have afforded the opportunity to "play the scoring system".

                              Michael has to take more chances now, and currently the better package appears to be Williams. It's imperative that Michael qualify better than he has in the last few races. If he can't stay in contact with Montoya during the race, he better pray for some JPM bad luck.

                              ......or some rain

                              .....or some cool weather
