    Just the fact that he is getting paid to drive NASCAR may be more than he might have made next year in Formula 1. JPM has not impressed anyone of late in F1 with his driving skills. He has been routinely out qualified by his teammate and has made some mistakes during races that are typically unacceptable from a driver of his supposed skill level.

    Before anyone takes this the wrong way, I am an avid JPM fan. His style of driving is similar to that of Paul Tracy and Tony Stewart, both favorites of mine as well, they drive hard and aggressive to the point where it sometimes hurts them both in individual races and professionally, career wise. Both Tracy and Stewart had some help forced upon them to tone down their driving habits and it led them to championships and being in more demand as drivers. It is a shame that Tracy didn't learn his lessons earlier in his career as he, IMHO, would probably have done well in F1 if given the chance.

    Hopefully JPM will take this oppurtunity to turn himself around and re-establish himself as one of the premier race drivers, no matter what the venue, of our time.

    Well he got to try F1 and apparently it isn't "all that".

    I'd rather watch F1 but it's such a freakin political circus show that it's totally understandable that he would want to get out.

    He's still going to make tons of money in NASCAR and if he is going to have more FUN why not.

    yeah if fun is driving a 3500 pound carbed dinosour around in circles in 40th place with some 18yo punk lapping you cause thats all he's ever driven.

    most open wheelers have washed out of nascar except for a few road course events.

    F1 drivers tend to make considerably more money that NASCRAP drivers.

    My guess is JP didn't put on a good show, the offer to re-up his contract insulted him, so he went to NASCAR.

    Whether or not he is any good remains to be seen. Tony Stewart has done a considerable amount of open-wheel driving, and he does well. On the other hand, I believe there is an Andretti in NASCAR that sucks.

    My guess is he will tear it up at the road courses, but will take a while to get rolling on a big oval like Daytona.

    Think he got beat out by Tiger, but he's still way up there, that's for sure. Something like 80 million a year?

    Are mazda's built in Latin America?

    He might as well have Ford as his ride. He can be the hero of Hermosillo.

    Any Brazilian car manufacturers?
