From the Pulpit

F1 Racing's Matt Bishop does not believe we've seen the last of Jacques Villeneuve. He explains why

Flashback to Sunday, August 10th 1997. Twelve-year-old Robert Kubica is at the Hungaroring, watching his first Grand Prix, having been driven to Budapest from his native Krakow by his father, Artur. On the long drive home he will talk only of how thrilling it has been to watch Jacques Villeneuve pass Damon Hill on the race's final lap to take a dramatic victory.

On Sunday, August 6th 2006, just nine short years after that fateful trip, Robert will make his Grand Prix debut at that same Hungaroring, replacing that same Jacques Villeneuve, who, for reasons as yet unclear, has been declared hors de combat.
