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.

Richard, if Gilles was so incensed that he took risks endangering his own life and the lives of other drivers based on the "betrayal" by Pironi (Big deal - happens all the time) it suggests that Villeneuve was unstable.. No Im afraid that he made a mistake and it cost him his life.

Coookingflat (?) Since when has any driver not won armed with the best car ? Pretty much never. Seem to remember JV didnt do to badly in the Bar. Might be wrong on that one.

Love him or hate him, he won a WDC, sat on the pole in his first race, and he won a champ car series and the Indy 500 when it meant something, He drove his heart out for his teams and even Patrick Head admitted that JV was very quick. JV's point is valid: team orders do exist and you are contracted to the team. If F1 powers don't want these scenarios, change the rules.

Mark has never helped Seb. We have seen enough evidence of it in the past. Seb also clearly knows it. If Seb decided to violate team orders, Im pretty sure he didnt want to give it to Mark. Apologies can be given in tons, but emotions will guide decisions on track everytime. Hope this happens again. Good for sport

I loved JV as a driver and deplore his moved to BAR, which I think spoiled his career. But I've noticed over the years that whatever he has to say is negative - it's always against something or someone, always stated in a harsh, unqualified way. If anyone should understand SV it's JV, but no, he calls him stupid. I think JV that if you were as bright as SV you'd have had a better career.

Here we go again... More useless comments from Villeneuve. He has a serious mental issue with Seb. Seb is the man he always wanted to be and he can't stand it. So he jabs at him whenever he gets the chance. Its mankind's most ugly trait. Jealousy.

People forget it was this very track the same situation happened in 2010. They raced up to the last round of put-stops and were told to hold station. Vettel won with webber 4 secs behind.

I got mad love and respect for Jacques Villeneuve. The 1997 season is my favorite season. I remember how he dominated Indy and then went to F1 and won it all. He will always be one of my favorite drivers and personalities. (Even though his music sucks. :p)

I respectfully disagree with him on this matter though. Mark Webber should have pulled over for Vettel and made it easier. He said himself at the British GP a few years back that he was a number 2 driver. He knows in his heart of hearts that he is a number 2 driver.

I think Red Bull could really care less about the matter. They only made these press releases to save face and look good. They did it in spite of you, not for you.
