Jacques seeks virtual experience

Jacques Villeneuve may be an experienced Formula 1 driver but he goes to Bahrain this week at a disadvantage because he has never driven at the track. Jacques's solution is to have ago on a Formula 1 video game so that he knows all the corners of the circuit. Villeneuve will be one of five drivers racing for the first time in the Middle East: the others are Narain Karthikeyan, Tiago Monteiro, Christijan Albers and Patrick Freisacher.

Villeneuev will need all his experience of F1 to get him quickly up to speed, something which is necessary as he struggles to compete with team mate Felipe Massa.
