Well done Bob! I watched for the first time F1 when I was a kid in 1997, watching only 2 or 3 races. Very soon I liked Jacques Villeneuve and his spirit fight and strangely I disliked Schumacher very much, and since than I never liked him(Schumi). Villeneuve knows the enviroment of F1 better than anyone which postes here so respect him please. The most I like about JV is that he wants an F1 based around the driver and his quality but for many years now, we are watching only money, designers and engineers and politics, they rule the life of F1 now. I would love watching and F1 season without controversy, so much politics and without Adrian Newey. I would love to watch Alonso, Vettel, Hamilton, Raikkonen, Button and co, racing with almost identical cars. But this is impossible, only a dream.

Having been around to see JV in his Indycar and his F1 days I have to say that I was a fan of his back then. But of late his quotes just come off as fanboyism. And jumping on the anti-Vettel bandwagon while he is on the cusp of his third straight F1 title? Did Vettel wrong him somehow? Date someone he shouldn't have? Pour (faux) champagne on his childhood hero? Come on man Vettel is a human being. God help them when he finally does reach the level of “Maturity” that some seem to “require” for him to be allowed into the realm of F1 greats. He and Alonso are two different people with divergent personalities, upbringings, and social circles. That they are the two gladiators battling to the finish for their third titles is just icing on the cake. Enjoy the show and stop hating!

firestorm. so you have only been watching f1 since 1997? then i suggest that you try and watch races from further back!
and you want to have f1 without newey???

f1 is about advanced engineering and innovation. that is what the f1 fans want. just because adrian has been at the forefront of technology for many years, you dont want him??

have a look at the input that he has had during the last 20 or so years. and look at the stunning cars he has produced, including wdc winning cars, those of champions who are now considered "legends". they would not have won without newey.

i suppose you also believe that we would have been better off without chapman, or byrne etc.

As an Indycar and F1 champion JV has every right to speak and I am interested in what he has to say. However after his performances in the V8 taxis this year, it might be time to hang up the gloves and accept 'elder statesman' status.

That might involve choosing his comments more carefully...

Let's see...
Atlantic champion,
Indy 500 champion,
CART champion (when that meant something)
Sat on pole in first F1 race (yes, a Williams but still an accomplishment)
F1 champion.
Consistently sits on pole and leads his "hobby" races in NASCAR when Montoya and others cannot.
Is he brash? Yes. Do I agree with him? Frequently not.
However, even Patrick Head says he was a very deserving champion and he is definitely entitled to his opinion.
And in this instance, he happens to be correct.
