COMPARISON: Juan Montoya and Nigel Mansell


In a new series I am doing on the blog, Comparison. I compare certain things. The first one is Nigel Mansell’s rookie championship year and Juan Montoya’s championship year as a rookie in 1999. Remember Mansell came after the Williams F1 team basically kicked him out for Alain Prost in 1993 and Montoya was basically a straight swap for Zanardi at Williams. Montoya was  a test driver at Williams in 1998 so Frank Williams and Chip Ganassi basically made a straight swap deal.

The 1993 season had 16 races in it but Mansell sat out Phoenix due to a concussion sustained in qualifyin
