Villeneuve and Williams

Jacques Villeneuve has told Montreal's La Presse newspaper that he has not received an offer to join BMW Williams. This is not news. Villeneuve rang Williams to see if they were interested in him and was told that there was not much of a chance but that he was low down on the team's list of likely drivers in 2005. The stories published in Montreal do not however mean that Jacques will not test for the team within a few weeks and given the timing it is probable that the interview was arranged to dampen speculation during the week of the Canadian Grand Prix. Villeneuve has been in training recently and we believe that he will try to make an F1 comeback and that it is still likely that he will test for Williams.
