I think Villeneuves major problem seems to be his trust in his manager Mr. Pollock he does not seem to have a very good reputation in the racing world, perhaps Jacques should find him self a new manager.

sorry for the fans of J.V. but he is only an pale replica of the great G. Villeneve and changing mannager did not change the driver. He is finished ans for his name is better to stay beside the track.

I am a realist. American cars aren't really american made anymore so I don't have a problem Toyata coming to Cup. I do have a problem with the trend of Team Owners in NASCAR jumping for these washed up, wannabe open wheels drivers. You want to be a believeable "stock car" drive, do it in the same manner that you do in F1 or Champ Car, start out in a lesser series and work your way up. It seems the trend now is if you have hit bottom in open wheel, jump to NASCAR and get back in the money. Juan Pablo is the man I have always pulled for on Saturday night at South Boston, YEAH, RIGHT.

Well I guess you forgot he was the youngest rookie of the year in 94 for Champ car then won the championship in 95 including the Indy 500. In 96 he finished second as a rookie in F1 then won the championship in 97..... Pale replica? maybe not a shumacher but still he beat him in 97!

Yes, Pale replica. he finished second in F1 behind Damon Hill on the best car of the season. 96 was the year of Williams and the superiority of the car alowed to the Hill / Willeneuwe duo to finish largley ahead of all the others.
97 he had to become World Champion ad M.S. was DNF for an moowe on him in Portugal an moowe with no contact. M.S. vas penalised becaose of his disobbeyance.
For the good promotion of the F 1 in America J.V."s world tytle was vital.
After that, no suprt fron the FIA no titles for J.V. no good races, only complains.
