Ferrari illegal?? Ferrari problems??

   Here is a quote from Jacques Villeneuve posted on the f1-live site. Does
anyone know what he is talking about when he says the new Ferrari not legal or
problems that Ferrari has ?

"The situation is quite different from last season," commented the Canadian. "We
can be satisfied with the car's reliability, a little less
   with its velocity. I think we will be just behind McLaren. I am not
forgetting Ferrari, but I heard that they have their own problems and
   that the car may not be legal."

Who cares about what JV has to say. Don't forget this is the same guy who
tought he'd win it all in 1998, and so put out the challenge.

I don't know why JV is constantly jabbing at Ferrari. I'm begining
to wonder... could he be holding an 18 year old grudge?

I suspect that he was referring to the***pit sides. There was some
suspicion that the Ferrari sides (like the Jordans) were illegal. But I
think that the illegality for the Ferrari was deemed easy to fix, whereas
the Jordan problems are a bit more severe.

He is Jacques "I have nothing to learn in F1" Villeneuve, the man who
invented race car driving.

Actually, he's just a spoiled mediocre punk, who's hitched his wagon
to a rather slow star, and he's trying to divert attention from his
pitiful efforts and his pathetic performance.

   He had things to learn and he did his sharing of teaching e.g. he gave  Schuey a
lesson in how to win 'cleanly' in the last race of the season when you need the win for
yourself and the team. That leson was not taught however. For three consequtive years
Shuey had the chance (in 1998 he needed to win to have a shot at it) to bring the
championship to Ferrari each time the guy failed. A quite remarkable record of failure
really given his car and natural ability. Perhaps the guy simply lacks the Jacques
mental acumen

I guess everyone is entitled to an opinion no matter how dumb it is.

I've said it before and I'm really tempted to offer another MJF-esque
