It's sad to see how Villeneuve went on to spend his days in racing after BAR. If he stayed with the team he would had ended up with a Honda that would then become Brawn but pulling out and then rejoining with Sauber was a career ending decision. After that he should had gone to race something he loved but at age 41 he's still trying to find himself in racing again what a shame. To the haters Villeneuve won the Indy Series back when it was very competitive and won Formula 1 beating his team mate which had won against Schumi on earlier formulas. He was a great driver who just got lost and still is trying to find himself. Barrichello was much more smart than Villeneuve and is doing what he loves Villeneuve should do the same!

V8 Supercars is an awesome series.. Equal cars (NASCAR style, but way nicer looking), better tracks, and lots of touring car style bumping and banging. I already watch it whenever I can, having a fellow Canadian to cheer for would be awesome.

Jacques is THE journeyman. His F1 career was ruined by David Richards and Craig Pollack, and he never really recovered, did he?

The one thing that Jacques DESERVES is a Le Mans win, but with Peugeot now gone, I can't see that happening...
