1997 F1 World Champion Jacques Villeneuve has given the BAR Honda 005 the thumbs up adding it looks like a "proper F1 car."

Speaking to BBC Sport Online today at the launch of the 2003 car in Barcelona, the Canadian said: "I think we should be able to fight against everyone, except Ferrari, if the numbers [technical director] Geoff [Willis] has shown us are true."

Villeneuve, who joined BAR in 1999 after racing for Williams-Renault, added: "At least this one looks like a proper F1 car, so that's good."

Jacques contract with the team expires at the end of the year.
