Ever since Montoya announced that he wants to join NASCAR and leave the F1, I have lost a lot of respect for him. Why someone goes from the Formula 1 to NASCAR still puzzles me. Juan Pablo Montoya is unable to test NASCAR this summer because Dodge, the US subsidiary of DaimlerChrysler has not been able to negotiate his release from his contract at McLaren - despite the fact that McLaren is also linked to DaimlerChrysler. The only logical explanation of this is that there are legal matters that must be cleared up before McLaren can grant Montoya a release. If that does not happen he will have to wait until the end of the F1 season on October 22.
