As reported on

Canadian Jacques Villeneuve says he might quit Formula 1 this year and move to the US-based Nascar championship in 2007. It seems likely that Villeneuve will be dropped by BMW Sauber at the end of the 2006 season in favour of Polish test driver Robert Kubica……with no top teams apparently interested in him either……

Villeneuve said at the weekend: “Going to Nascar might not be such a bad career move because it’s the most exciting race series in the US and it’s a very different discipline to F1. I would not consider it a step down. Would I consider a move to stock cars? I would. But I would have to consider my family too as we would have to move to the US.”

That would be a perfect move for you JV! Knowing very well that you can’t be on a F1 podium [only except if 17 cars crash out of a race] and no decent contructor is ready to employ you. Hey and guess what !! You are no longer one of the directors of GPDA !! You resigned .. remember !!

And given your “flying” singing career, you definately are better off flying [hopefully] at NASCAR.

    he should have stopped after his win and switched fields. “Newtown” club/bar in Montreal is doing pretty well. Though I do not know if he owns it
