Jacques Villeneuve's days in Formula One look to be numbered, after he revealed he has yet to agree a deal for 2004.

Villeneuve, who finished a strong sixth at the weekend for BAR-Honda, told BBC Sport Online: "There is no inkling of an offer coming from anywhere and there hasn't been an offer from BAR either.

"It is late and there is no good news so there is no reason to be optimistic.

"I am working hard on it and I know a lot of people are working hard on it but there are also people working hard against it.

"No decision has been officially taken by the team and it doesn't look too good but that doesn't mean it is finished," added the Canadian, who has endured a frustrating time since joining the Brackley based squad in 1999, after driving for Williams and winning the title in 1997.

"It is out of my hands though, it is Lucky Strike's hands, in the team's hands and in Honda's hands. I guess it depends on who wins the battle but there is a big push for Takuma Sato coming from Honda.

"It doesn't matter what you achieve, people will see what they want.

"If they are positive with you they will see the one good thing you have done in 10 years, but if they want to be against you they will see the one bad thing you have done even if the rest of the time you have been doing good things."
