Montoya, of course (Same nationality )!
[SV]I wish...but he can't make it while Schumi & Ferrari are there
He's demonstrated that if he has a competitive car he can beat ferrari and Co. He just hasn't had it.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Schumi and Ferrari AGAIN!
But I think Montoya will be a stronger than ever competitor so it'll be really close.
I think Ralf Schumacher is a potential wildcard that could suddenly be massively improved and present a real threat to both of them!

Sadly Schumi seems to be heading the pack again. Sadly because he's the single biggest prick of them all, quite unlike his brother who's a nice guy.
BMW is going strong as well, sadly Mercedes/McLaren has QA problems or they'd be far stronger.
The entire F1 circuit needs more competition. As it is currently it's hardly interesting to watch (as well as frustrating if you don't like red).

You hit the nail on the head.
Schumi (of course only Michael deserves this name, his little brother is Ralle) grew up in a village very close to where I did. So I am expert. In the forrest bordering my parents house one sometimes was able to hear the motors of the card race track of Schumacher senior.
When I see Schumi in TV interview its like watching one of my team mates of the football club I played as kid grown up.
Schumi is not the kind of guy who shines in media. He's authentic personality.

Good one!
Yeah, its kinda boring, to be honest � we know who is going to win next race - and I am almost sure who will win the one after that, and the next one. And the one after that..... Uh, this is like watching paint dry! A crash here and a spin there is just not enough to keep me excited!
Last season's rule changes made it slightly more interesting, but they should bring more such rules to make the race bit more unpredictable! Its not too exciting to watch near-perfect machine-like men driving near-perfect machines around for hours! Give luck a chance!!

Yes you r rite...though Schumi deserves the title there should be some competion against him or else it would be just like watching a tv serial without any thrill.......and I agree Montoya is the only guy capable of doing this.....

Schumi/Ferrari
Are the way to go in F1-2004.
Folks keep you fingers crossed for Button, Trulli and even Alonso.

Alonso is a little kid he has to gain a lot of experience before he wins the title....but Button and Trulli are in the wrong team......

I'm REDDDD !!! Go Shumi/Ferrari !!!
The situation for Ferrari now is ok, but few year ago wasn't the same. I remember with Alain Prost and Jean Alessi.

Already 4 consecutive victories for schumi this season...If he wins one this weekend its going to be another record of 5 wins in a row I guess....Button really did well in the previous race...
