Jacques Villeneuve Makes Team Entry Bid For 2011
Jacques Villeneuve has announced he has made a bid to enter Formula One under the team banner of Villeneuve Racing.
The new team, launched by the Canadian, is said to have already passed both financial and technical barriers imposed by Bernie Ecclestone and the FIA in order to make sure there would be no repeat of the USF1 incident.
Details of the new project are scarce, Villeneuve himself is only at this stage recognising the fact a bid for the 13th slot has taken place. We do not know if he will just be managing the team or whether the 39 year old will race for his own team.
“I’ve never made it a secret that I’m working hard on an F1 project,” Villeneuve told BBC Sport. “But I’ve not discussed the details or what my plans were and I won’t be drawn on it now. I’m not commenting.”
