    Are you going to miss him?

    I, BAR, and hopefully the rest of the world will not:

    Ciao, and make sure the door doesn't hit your ass on the way out.

    good driver bad car engine. But I am sure he can do better in other team. Reliable car peformance is also the factor of winning trophies.

    he was a great driver, he nearly beat our damon hill in his first race and nearly one the title first time out which is very hard to do lol and then kicked frentzens ass the next year when he won the title

    hes one of the best drivers out there i think, he just needs the car, give him that and he will win loads, he has just been unlucky with the car recently


    errr ? ? ?

    im confused

    I think he's an overrated driver - he can win races, but he complains and moans too much - yeah he has a car that loves to blow a valve or two each weekend, but he's just a grump.

    Go back to Indy/Champ cars.

    Bitter and twisted, but a great driver imo.

    Got pole in his first ever F1 race.

    He has a lot to live up to what with his father and the driver he was. Anyone remember the San Marino GP of 1979? It is the first one I remember watching with Gilles Villenueve and Rene Arnoux banging wheels all the way around the track on the last two laps. Needless to say, Gilles won even though he was against a turbo engine with about 50 more hp than his Ferrari.

    I like Jaques but he is a bit on the "miserable" side. Anybody that would decide to stick it out with BAR either has a love for agony or no where else to go. He was brilliant for a while then gave it all up for some strange reason.

    Go back to Indy/Champ cars.
    We don't want him

    Heck we gave you "Shortie" (Dematta). He's the exact oppostie of Villeneuve, was always happy go lucky and a bit hyper. A little like Castronevez. Christiano will be good.

    I assumed from the comments made by David Hobbs during the race coverage on Speedvision that Jaques is gone from F1 for good. Although they weren't very forthcoming with details as it would appear that noones really sure what's going on with Mr. V.

    I've always felt he was a bit of a cocky SoaB.
    But he's had his time of glory and move onto somthing new and stop moaping about F1

    A good driver cann't do much about Engine failure like Mika had b4. Hopefully, he will join a better team.

    Nah, he used to be great of course, but he sucks now, makes basic driving errors, blames the car for everything.

    Cya, make room for someone who deserves it
