Jacques Villeneuve,the veteran formula one driver and son of the great Gilles Villeneuve (on whom the Montreal circuit is named), has said that he will try for one last time to secure a F1 seat for the 2011 season.
Till the start of the season he was being linked to Stefan GP who weren’t able to secure a slot for the 2010 formula one season. Since the Stefan GP outfit are trying desperately hard to get a slot for next year, its very much possible that Villeneuve might be able to get a seat with them if he is able to convince them.
“I’m quite happy right now being busy raising kids. I would obviously be happier behind a wheel. Once you’ve been a racer, I think you’re a racer all your life,” Villeneuve said.
“I worked hard on it in 2010. I’m giving myself until 2011. There’s still a few months,” he added.
“The teams don’t want to take a risk. There comes a point where you’ve been out for too long and the teams just won’t give you a chance,” he said.
Meanwhile German rival Michael Schumacher who has had a controversial relationship with the Canadian agreed with Villeneuve.
“I have proved this year F1 is not like football and other sports, you don’t need to be a young age to perform,” said Michael Schumacher.
“The point is, as Jacques was saying, we are racers, and we have that in our blood. So, what you have there, you always keep.” The German ace added.
