Great pic John! Juan Pablo's girlfriend/wife is gorgeous.

I found this:

Formula One driver Juan Pablo Montoya has taken delivery of the high-performance MV Agusta F4 Senna he ordered through the Paul Feeney Group in Australia.

The 26-year-old Colombian ordered the MV Agusta while on the Gold Coast 12 months ago to drive in the Championship Auto Racing Teams (CART) 300km event in Surfers Paradise, before he switched to Formula One this year with the Williams team.

Montoya's interest in the machine, named after Formula One legend Ayrton Senna, was sparked after participating in a motorcycle ride for CART drivers through the Gold Coast hinterland organised by Group Managing Director Paul Feeney, the Australian distributor for MV Agusta.

"After the ride he (Montoya) said that he wanted a Senna bike, but he didn't think it was possible to get one because only 300 of them were built," said Feeney.

Feeney then contacted MV Agusta Motorcycles President Claudio Castiglioni in Italy who authorised one of the top-of-the-range machines be made available for Montoya.

"Juan Pablo was delighted because he is a real motorcycle enthusiast and he said Ayrton Senna was his all-time favourite driver," said Feeney.

Montoya took delivery of his machine, which is linked to the Senna Foundation assisting youth programs in Brazil, from Castiglioni during a visit to the MV Agusta factory in Varese with girlfriend Connie.

The Senna motorcycle features a slightly hotter version of the Cagiva F4 engine with modified pistons and crankshaft, revised gearbox, exclusive colour combinations and graphics, and additional carbon-fibre components compared to the F4 S and F4 SPR models.

Montoya won the CART championship title in 1999 and the Indianapolis 500 the following year. In 2001, his first year in Formula One, he won the Italian Grand Prix at Monza for Williams.

Good find Andy..

Yeah, JPM's girl friend is definitely a stunner..

Do you think she goes out with him because he owns a Limited Edition MV and has Zillions of $ in the bank or is it because he can make a mega cup of coffee ?..

I remember reading back in the day that they met at an Indycar race. She was at the race with her boyfriend at the time, and he was a huge Montoya fan but was too shy too ask for his autograph, so he asked her to get it for him. And the rest is history!

I wonder if ex-boyfriend has slept a single night since? :loser:

Barista skills are a definite possibility. She sure doesn't stick with him due to his patience:
