ADVERTISING FINE DINING, BUT SERVING UP FAST FOOD

Can I make a confession? I watched about 40 laps of the race, and packed it in for a nap and the NFL. I know this is journalistic sacrilege, but remember, in this role, I am a commentator and not a reporter.

Montoya could have bumped or wrecked Martin, but he didn't. Why? Because Martin is the closest thing the former Formula 1 driver has to a mentor and crossing that line is something even a hothead like Montoya knows he can't do. One race down. Nine to go.
