Au revoir Jacques

BMW and Jacques Villeneuve have announced the end of the road together

The announcement quoted Villeneuve as saying that "last week, the team informed us of its decision to review its options for next year, including assessing Robert Kubica in a race environment at Hungary without offering me any assurance about my race seat beyond Hungary. Therefore, the team and I agreed to part ways with immediate effect. This is really disapointing as I was looking forward to working with BMW on longer terms - going into next season capitalizing on our common experiences."
