Juan Pablo Montoya off to Nascar next season

Juan Pablo Montoya will join Chip Ganassi Racing for next year. It has been reported that it is Juan who asked Chip Ganassi Racing for the race seat and otherwise but it is imaterial. Most important of all, Juan got to confirm that he will race again next year, after several not so successful seasons at F1. Mc Laren has also confirmed that Juan will be released immediately and his remaining F1 races will be replaced by Mc Laren test driver Pedro de la Rosa.

To me, it is rather a good move by Juan. As a F1 driver , you want to continue to race without having to stop for a year or two. Getting a race seat these day is not easy. Good that Juan grap one quick when it is available.

With Juan leaving Mc Claren, it looks like Kimi seat with Mc Laren is secured. But then is there a point for Kimi to stay at Mc Laren ? It would be better off for Kimi to join better team like Renault where he may stand a chance to win a title. It has been a disappointing season for Mc Laren so far.
