This wasn't what I was hoping for, but at least JV will stay sharp driving daily in case the opportunity to compete comes up in the future

Glad to see JV's foes are as dedicated as his followers. I think we'll see him take one more kick at the can somewhere in the racing world. I think his choice is still somehow getting sponsored in Nascar, but from this fans opinion I'd rather see him in an open wheeled race car.
Anyway we'll see if anything is left in his gas tank.

I never understood why people take their own time to bad mouth somebody on a regular basis, it is either jealousy or the fact that they live such a miserable and pathetic life, putting JV down will not elevate you from the the pile of shit that constitute your miserable life....but if it makes you feel good...

That's one way to view it I haven't thought about. JV is making all these venomous people a little happier by allowing them to vent.
He's supposed to be at the Monaco GP this weekend and has been mentioned on several forums as maybe becoming involved with another F1 team in 2010. USF1 wants a veteran, but seeing that Peter Windsor and he have never seen eye to eye may put the brakes on that move.
Andretti/Green is also considering an entry attempt and are talking of JV and Marco pairing up. Jacques overall experience would be a large asset to a start up team, and they figure he could show young Marco the ropes as well.
But, everyone knows its a long shot to see him back in F1.
It would tickle me the colour of that one stripe on his helmet to get one more kick at the can.

Just telling it like it is Jock, the clown was a miserable failure who chose, after his fall from F1 grace, to do exactly what you just accused some of us of doing ... he bad mouthed his fellow drivers in an attempt to vindicate himself from a career that started with such promise and ended in total humiliation, and really was an insult to his great father's name. No doubt it was jealousy, he was always of the opinion that because he carried the great Villeneuve name he would automatically be considered and chosesn to drive for Ferrari, and when that did not happen he became a bitter, sad little man. Maybe if Jack had been a little more gracious in defeat, there would not be as much critisizm of the little git, and you could go to bed at night with a warm fuzzy feeling, bowing to the giant framed picture you have of Jack on your bedside table .... knowing that everyone out has a good opinion of him ....
