F1 » RBR not letting 'spoilt' Vettel learn from his mistakes

As a man who has lifted the laurels in the top flight before, Jacques Villeneuve warns Red Bull Racing that by not admonishing Sebastian Vettel for the mistakes he has made, they could be destroying the young German's chances of claiming F1 2010 title glory

I don't dislike SV, he has potential that's obvious. But what I really want to know is why is he perceived to be the next MS?
Did anybody see Couthard drive this years RB at Silverstone? He made the comment that it was the best F1 car he's every driven and 'no wonder the boys are doing so well'....
MW has built up his reputation and has the experience that SV lacks..
Does anybody remember MW's first race? Australia, driving a Minardi (FFS) and came in 6th! Compare that with a maiden win for SV in a TorroRosso? Damn right!
Webber you deserve it. Drive ya ass off, win the championship, retire on the ultimate high and go do something else - that you excel at!

Jacques who?

Why does he think he can comment? He is nothing more than an average ex-F1 driver who was lucky enough to be in the right car one year and win the championship, whereas whoever wins the championship this year will deserve the title.

RRT - He also won the cart championship while it was in its prime and made a chuffing good display in the uncompetitive Williams the year following his F1 title.

JV didnt even have the karting background all the current drivers have, he was just thrown into single seaters and expected to emulate his dad.

JV has my respect.

Villeneuve has been In Aust for past week so where/when did this story emanate.

Salo is also here and has said the same thing as regards Mark/Seb.

Villeneuve states whilst he is seeking opportunity in NASCAR if the right opportunity was placed on the table he would relocate to Aust. He is presently competing in the V8 Championship and set the 3rd quickest time in practice for an international.

He admits the world of Motorsport is looking at his result in Aust and would be reflective of his ability.

I generally agree but why retire, he has signed for one more year, next years RBR will most likely be pretty good so stay around for that year and enjoy his champion status if he wins...and then burger of and do whatever takes his fancy.

Sorry Jacques, I was never your greatest fan, but spoilt br*ts are the way to go these days. Where would Ferrari, McLaren or Red Bull be without them?
