Sauber Baffled by Villeneuve's Slow Pace

Thursday March 10th, 2005

Jacques Villeneuve's disappointing debut for Sauber in last weekend's
Australian Grand Prix has baffled the Formula One team.

The 1997 World Champion started fourth on the grid and finished 13th
while Brazilian teammate Felipe Massa went from last to 10th after rain
in qualifying scuppered his chances. The Canadian lost five places on
the first lap alone.

To make matters worse, Massa was on a one-stop strategy and driving with
a fuller fuel load. Yet his fastest lap was almost a second quicker than
Canadian Villeneuve in a lighter car.

"I can't explain the difference, which is a big one," Peter Sauber told
the website of sponsor Credit Suisse. "Really it was bigger than it
looks.

"Felipe Massa, at the start and the pitstop, drove with a heavier car.
In contrast to the other drivers who made two pitstops, he only had a
one-stop strategy in mind."

Sauber said that Villeneuve, who made a low-key race comeback with
Renault for the last three races of 2004 after being dropped by BAR in
2003, had said little about his difficulties.

"We still have to analyse it," he said. "Villeneuve himself is not
saying much at the moment. He had problems in certain phases of the race
but he hasn't revealed anything more than that."

...

I have a thought...

Be prepared to be baffled again in Malaysia as JV shows another mediocre
performance.

I hope Peter's got him on a strictly performance related contract.

Atlas got this bit wrong - JV wasn't in a lighter car at the time they both
set their fastest laps. They set their fastest times on what was effectively
the same lap (54 for JV & 55 for FM - Jacques was a lap down). At that time
they were both fuelled for two more racing laps plus a bit extra - essentially
they were the same weight.

He should rather get himself a small dog, in that case.

Which was his exact reasoning... :)

I simply clicked on the link and reported it on their *Spamming reports* ( I
don't make a habit of reporting spammers but almost every single thread
tonight he/she has replied to with the same *help me get a laptop* post!)

They don't understand. Neither does RASF1. Nobody has twigged JVs
brilliance, his tactical nous, the sheer genius of the man.

He's taking the long view.

He's going to fly in Malaysia because his engine was only lightly
stressed at Melbourne. Now he can give it welly whilst a lot of other
people are trying to nurse their mill through to the finish.

And so it will be every second race.

Recant all ye doubters! The man is one step ahead of the game!
