I think it's cos no-one here thinks he's any good, at least with Narain there is yourself, Shadow and a couple of others who rate him and are willing to stick up for him

I don't particulaly rate either of them too highly, I believe that both of the Minardi drivers are better.

Karthikeyan's got $30 sponsors to keep him in F1, Monteiro does not!

I presume you were meant to put 'million' after '$30'...?

But yes, Karthikeyan is totally undeserving of a place a F1, purely because of the means in which he got there; paying off Midland and India desperate to build some kind of fragile base in Formula One in which to work on in the future.

in a car like jordan since you are atleast 1.5 seconds behind the people in front of you and about a second ahead of the cars behind you, you can either try to drive as fast as the car can go (NK) or decide to take whatever finishing spot you can get by finishing ahead of the minardis while driving conservatively .

Let be honest... No one here thinks Monteiro is good, He's infact superbly Cr@p...

He's just less cr@p than karthikeyan.

I do think karthikeyan is better than that Alex yoong ever was if that

Istanbul update:

NK is plagued by technical problems throughout friday and saturday, gearbox problems on friday and TWO engine changes on saturday. he obviously does not set a time. TM ends up 15th on the grid after having a problem free weeekend and looks set for another race finish ahead of the minardis. CA was the last driver to set a time with a problem free lap.

If you are performing worse than Monteiro, you are worse than Monteiro. No excuses.
