Juan Pablo Montoya

JP despite being such a strong character, failed to live up to his talents. He came agonizingly close in 2003 though. So much so that in the penultimate round at Indianapolis, he was just 3 points behind Schumacher.

He outpaced the German on Saturday to line up 4th. But a poor getaway saw him drop back. Trying to pass the Ferrari of Barrichello, Montoya made contact that earned him a drive-through. He served his drive through on lap 18 and in that instant rain came down.

Montoya was forced to do a lap in the rain on slicks. He trundled to P6 while Schumacher won the race and with that, his title hopes were squandered.
