You cant pull in that close in front of a car and then expect it to brake, the loss of downforce for the Jordan would have been too great. Montoyas done that before though ;).

Kimi was rather quiet when told that Montoya wasnt 2nd :D :D :D.


Whilst I agree that Montoya pulled in sharpish, Monteiro should have expected Montoya to rejoin the racing line and should have recognised that Montoya was going to have to brake hard infront of him. Monteiro should have started braking earlier to compensate for this.

Raikkonen driver of the day for me as well. Superbly done.

Lost it at the start but that overtaking move between the 2 Renaults was fantastic.

Time the entire incident from Montoya pulling in to going off, there wasnt time for Monteiro to react.

Monteiro shouldn't have left himself that little time to react though. If he knew that Montoya was going to pass him he should have recognised he would have very little time to react and should have altered his braking accordingly.
