Jacques shit the money bed by following Craig P. to BAR. Sure his bank account was full but he turned his career into a laughing stock of the racing world. The 24 hours of Le Mans produced a 2nd place and his teammates felt they would have won if not for Jacques. NASCAR don't even get me started he is treated like a show pony in the Nationwide minor league. But has never gotten any results.....V8's ..... Ice racing????? He is starting to turn into Adam West turning up at car shows to stand next to the batmobile.
Should have went to Mclaren and would still be racing like Rubens.!!!

I agree with the sentiment that JV should've gone to Mclaren when he had the chance, its obvious that it wouldve been the right time just as Mclaren peacked in performance. Probly mixture of him mixing with wrong people ie C.P,and adrian Reynard, and probly a bit of JVs own arrogance and not getting on with the job and ignoring his personal feelings about ron dennis.
I disagree about V8 Supercar comment and Nascar he did ok in all considering the limited times he tried them. Would love to see JV in Sprintcup though.I can say as an Australian that JV impressed everyone in the V8s had it not been for a stupid move by Youldin JV wouldve been on podium and he was strong all weekend anyway.
Ne way JVs career of late has disappointed considering what it couldve been, and possibly what it still may be.
