F1 » Villeneuve: Vettel's actions deliberate and stupid

Jacques Villeneuve: The team give you the contract and pay and so you do what they want you to do. It is very simple. Ignoring is just plain wrong.

I am fine with people criticizing Vettel for ignoring team orders as long as they acknowledge that Webber has done so too. The hypocrisy of ignoring Webber 's history of this shows bias.

Whether you like JV or not he cartainly wasnt a failure - F1 Champion (Albeit in the best car) and Cart Champ. In fact achieved more than his illustrious father did. GV was a real racer but actually won very little nor achieved many Poles (A couple in total I think). Its unsafe to suggest that he died as a result of the spat with Didier Pironi if indeed Keke Rosberg did actually say that.

JV is right.

It is not Vettel's car to do with as he pleases.

It's RBR's car and Vettel is incredibly well paid to do a job as an employee of RBR.

And that job is to do whatever legal things the team tells you to do.

It Seb doesn't like it - there's the door.

I feel it was totally unnessasary of Crash to write "two weeks later he was killed..." like there was some connection.

As for JV, he should stick to his Billy Corgan tribute band.

Jacques Villeneuve is now France's Canal Plus channel official consultant, their Martin Brundle if you want so he's there on every GP and he will be expressing his views during the whole season...

Actually he turns out to be quite a decent consultant except for some of his landmark jibes at everything but he still does the job far better than I expected otherwise.

stuart. the comment is not too far fetched. practically all opinion is that gilles was so incensed with pironis "betrayal", and was determined to beat him on the road, that he took chances that he might not have otherwise taken, resulting in the fatal crash.
