"Silly Season"

Seit gestern tauchen immer neue Infos im Web:

Von der Englischen Zeiteung, The Sun:

JACQUES VILLENEUVE’S chances of making a shock return to BMW Williams stepped up a gear last night when he visited the team as they prepared to test.

The former Formula One world champ flew in his private jet from his Monaco home to the nearby Paul Ricard circuit.

And while the Williams crew set up for a pre-Monte Carlo workout, Canadian Villeneuve popped in for a chat.

Villeneuve, 33, also visited the garage of BAR, the team who axed him last season, to congratulate them on their fine performances this season.

It is the first time he has been at a race track since October, when he fell out with BAR and turned his back on the sport — refusing to race in the season-ending Japanese Grand Prix.

Villeneuve is now expected to have a seat-fitting before stepping into the cockpit and putting the Williams through its paces.

Last month, SunSport exclusively revealed that Villeneuve had held talks with team boss Frank Williams and technical director Patrick Head.

The pair have always loved Villeneuve’s gung-ho approach to racing and were disappointed when he left them after three successful years to help launch BAR into the sport.

But Villeneuve has told them he is itching for another shot at the world crown he won with Williams in 1997.

Williams are on the lookout for two new drivers. Juan Pablo Montoya signed a deal to race for McLaren next season while the team have made no recent offers of a new contract to Toyota-target Ralf Schumacher.

Bernie Ecclestone, the man who pushed Williams into giving Villeneuve his F1 chance in 1996, will be making a further drive for his return.

Ecclestone, who owns the Paul Ricard circuit, revealed: “It’s great that Jacques is having talks with Williams — I’ve been trying to get him to do that for a long time.

“I never felt Jacques should have left the sport in the first place and it would be fantastic to see him back.

“He was always exciting and if he was given a competitive car he could really show what he can still do.”
Wenn die Bangle Designlinie so weitergeht, werden bald alle BMW's der pre-2002 Ära Kult sein.Imho sind die neuen keine BMW's mehr.
Ab 2002 -> BMW = Bangle Motoren Werke.
