Villeneuve Says He Will Return To F1 In 2010 – Could It Be USF1?
Jacques Villeneuve WILL return to Formula One from the 2010 Formula One season he told German car magazine Sport Bild this week.
The Canadian is expected to race for the new American based team USF1, powered by Cosworth engines and headed up by Grand Prix veteran Peter Windsor.
Villeneuve has failed to establish himself in NASCAR, and after attending races recently the 1997 World Champion liked the return to slick tyres and flatter wings.
“It is true, I will return to Formula One.” Villeneuve told the magazine, but refused to say which team.
Meanwhile, USF1 said that their 2010 car or at least the first inception of it will be ready by October.
“Quite a lot of it is ready to manufacture,”Ken Anderson told Autosport Magazine (out tomorrow)
“The chassis is locked down, because we were waiting to hear if the [Cosworth] engine rev limit was 20,000rpm or 18,000rpm.
“The chaps will now start building the chassis in August. We will have it rolling on the ground in late September, without bodywork or stuff, and then the bodywork will get added in October.”
