Canadian Jacques Villeneuve has revealed he would consider moving to the NASCAR series if he were to leave Formula One.
The 1997 world champion is still trying to secure a drive for next season, with his contract with the BMW Sauber team coming to an end this year.
And although Villeneuve has said he is determined to stay in Formula One next season, the Canadian admitted he is open to other options like the Nextel Cup.
"Going to NASCAR might not be such a bad career move, because it's the most exciting race series in the US and it's a very different discipline to F1," Villeneuve wrote in a column Red Bull's Red Bulletin. "I would not consider it a step down.
"Would I consider a move to stock cars? I would. But I would have to consider my family too, as we would have to move to the US."
