:O Dissapointed..... very dissapointed. Frank Williams has never been able to keep good drivers has he? They just come and go. Good for McLaren I guess, two young guns that are #2 and #3 this year. BMW is screwed, probably might even take David Coultard, or some goof like Marc Webber.

what are you on glue?? Mark Webber is one of the best talents in F1 BTW, and I can guarantee you, if he goes to Williams (which he will) hes going to be very successfull, although he may not have the balls Monty has, he does have patients, something that JPM lacks IMO

don't worry guys, the only looser here is JPM, cause the fact is, Williams is carrying the best Engine in F1.

I don't follow F1 too closely, why does williams have the best engine?

ahhh, lets see,

Because It was one of the most reliable in the 2003 season,
Was the highest reving engine at a stagering 19000 RPM,
and the most powerfull engine in F1,

ohh and did I mention because its a BMW??

LOL Gamite, the Williams team uses the BMW engine, and will do so until the end of the 2009 season.

This season will be interesting! I think Montoya should be benched period for 04. FIA should regulate how contract renewals are done, agreeing one year before your contract expires is too much. Since he is not tied, but PART of mclaren now what will stop him from leaking information for this upcoming season? Mclaren guys were found under williams cars with measuring equipment in the past, those bastards are really sneaky. I can tell you that Montoya favours mercedes over bmw. His garage has some mercedes, but doesn't really consist of BMW's, other then the X5 they gave him for free which his wife uses.
