America's popular talk show host David Letterman is doing his bit for the promotion of Formula 1 in the United States of America - and will have Juan Pablo Montoya on the Late Show tomorrow on CBS. The show, which will be broadcast at 11.30pm EST, will be a good opportunity to add to the sales for this weekend's United States GP at Indianapolis. There has been much talk about dropping ticket sales but everyone seems to have forgotten that when you start with big numbers, a reduction does not mean problems. The event will still be the largest crowd of the year for Formula 1 and in a country which is not supposed to have much of an F1 fan base this is an impressive achievement.

David Letterman is a big fan of motor racing in general and is a shareholder in Bobby Rahal's Team Rahal CART team.
