Juan Pablo Montoya
Formula 1, Nascar and indy driver
The world is strong. You have to fight to get your place
Juan Pablo Montoya is a Colombian Formula 1 driver and the only motor racing professional to win a CART Serie title, the Indianapolis 500 and the Daytona 24 hours, all in his first attempt.
He inherited the love of his father for cars and from the age of five he began his passion for speed. From an early age, he began to demostrate his skills in this sport, becoming a young promise of Formula 1.
Montoya competed in three different categories at the same time, achieving good results, until he decided to move from Colombia to Europe to follow his dream of racing in Formula 1. He is an example of personal growth and how working with perseverance will help you to achieve everything you need.
Although Formula 1 may seems an individual sport, the key to success is teamwork. Juan Pablo Montoya stands out by exploiting the capabilities of each person and looking into available resources within themselves, creating efficient, committed and united teams that will be able to work under pressure.
Just like he did with his working teams in professional motorsports, Montoya is a speaker sending a contagious and powerful positive message of motivation and improvement to his audience. In his conferences he gives, through his personal and professional experience in motorsport, the keys of leadership to manage a team with success.

Afterwards, he began to race in Formula 1, stage when he won 7 victories, 30 pódiums and 13 poles. 2003 was his stelar season: he won the Monaco Grand Prix, one of the most important and prestigious races in the world.
