"You just don't mess with Jacques Villeneuve" - Murray Walker, 1997 Hungarian GP.
"When Jacques was with us, he was a very aggressive driver, fiercely competitive, mentally hard as nails. Very quick with it, very gifted. A bright fellow, undoubtedly, very intelligent. He was an absolutely born racing driver - look at the way he'd bang wheels with Michael, pass people on the outside, that kind of thing" -Sir Frank Williams on Jacques Villeneuve
"This year, with BMW, JV's going very well, and I'm pleased for him. Whether or not he'll get a drive next year I don't know, but I hope he does, he's an unusual, and very strong addition to the F1 community. A character." - Sir Frank Williams again on Jacques Villeneuve
The Nojvnof1 2006 driver lineup - Jacques Villeneuve, Nico Rosberg, Christian Klein, Scott Speed.

"Suffice to say that Michael Andretti is perhaps the most submitted driver we receive here. Not surprising, considering his dismal efforts in the McLaren in 1993. Though we all knew he would find it hard to tough it out against Ayrton Senna, considering his Indy man couldn't hack itIndy car reputation we would have expected more than his poor qualifying efforts and regular spins and accidents, especially in the opening laps.
If anything else, what should get Andretti in is his ridiculous attitude of living in the States and commuting to Europe for each race. Not only did this keep him away from his team, it meant that he was not immersed in a European environment and could never hope to succeed in F1 that way.
He is saved only by a few points scoring finishes, such as 5th in Spain, before a podium at Monza (in a fine drive from the back of the pack after an early pit stop) in his last F1 race before he bit the bullet and let in Mika Hakkinen, a man of infinitely more adaptability to F1. "
