JUAN PABLO MONTOYA and the famous “tennis” injury It was the year 2005 when the Colombian McLaren racer had to miss tests and two races due to an unusual injury. Juan Pablo Montoya loved to play tennis, but his injury in 2005, which he allegedly suffered due to slipping over the ball, was considered by many to be twisted from the vine.
In the season 2005 Juan Pablo Montoya had to skip two races. The McLaren pilot, who had just recently moved to Woking battle, had officially injured his shoulder while playing tennis. However, many insiders doubt this story and still suspect that Montoya has injured something completely different.
Tennis injury was root of Montoya problem admits Dennis. McLaren boss Ron Dennis has admitted that Juan Pablo Montoya's mysterious tennis injury was the root of the problem that led to the Colombian eventually heading off to NASCAR, unable to find a suitable F1 drive for 2007. "The accident that damaged his shoulder was very counter-productive, it took that year out of play," Dennis told reporters at Shanghai on Sunday.

Montoya hurt his shoulder playing tennis early in the 2005 season, missed a couple GPs and wasn't himself for a while. Plus he was way too aggressive at times and pushed the limit too far when it wasn't necessary, see Japan 2005. no one was expecting Schumacher to retire yet. Him retiring was very much a talking point from the get go.
