Jacques Villeneuve has been appointed to the BBC’s Radio 5 Live commentary team for this weekend’s Bahrain GP.
The 1997 World Champion’s aspiration for another F1 comeback were thwarted by the FIA’s refusal to grant the aspirant Stefan GP team a last-minute entry into the 2010 championship season, leaving the French-Canadian out in the cold and back to the job-seekers centre.
The incumbent Radio 5 Live commentary team consists of David Croft and ex-Honda driver Anthony Davidson.
With Davidson having recently been announced as a sign-up to Peugeot’s Le Mans championship campain, and with the season set to kick off at Sebring next weekend, a testing schedule clash means the little Briton won’t be in the commentary booth at Sakhir.
How will JV perform in the commentary booth?
