Jacques Villeneuve predicts McLaren Montreal win

Published

Jacques Villeneuve has repeated the sentiments of Sebastian Vettel by predicting a McLaren achievement at this weekend’s Canadian GP the 1997 World Champion, who effort to join the grid with Stefan GP this year, has also shared his estimation over the Red Bull Istanbul conflict.

And US F1 having pulled out at delayed notice, Serbia’s Stefan GP was left with a shortage of time to finalize arrangements for 2010, ending any chance of Villeneuve returning to the grid.

But, the French-Canadian is pleased to see F1 returning to his home zone of Quebec, where he predicts a rapid McLaren pace.

“I really love this track and I think that cars equipped with f-ducts should enjoy strong performances,” Villeneuve wrote in a column for rds.ca. “It’s a low-downforce circuit and has low-speed corners, which I think will suit McLaren.”

Villeneuve also consider that the Mark Webber/Sebastian Vettel coming together in Turkey last time out, which gift wrapped a 1-2 result for McLaren, was chiefly a racing event.

“I’m not sure how they found themselves in that situation, with both cars having been in the lead,” the 39-year-old commented. “They had a good lead over the McLarens but drivers are drivers and it’s very difficult not to give it 110 percent on the track, which means they turned against each other in the heat of the moment.”
