While F1 reject Jacques Villeneuve belongs in IndyCar, he will only go where the money is
(GMM) Jacques Villeneuve has apparently moved his sights from a full-time return to formula one, or a seat in the American NASCAR series, to Australia's domestic touring car series V8 Supercars.
The French Canadian driver will be one of the international drivers in this weekend's one-off Gold Coast 600 event, and he said he is prepared to move his family to Australia if he lands a full-time ride for 2011.
"I wouldn't mind coming and doing it full-time because it could be a lot of fun," said the 39-year-old world champion of 1997.
He admitted to the Sydney-published Daily Telegraph newspaper that his efforts to move into F1 next year with a Durango collaboration have likely come to an end.
"We were working hard on formula one, but we are looking towards other things like NASCAR now," said Villeneuve.
"We had everything in place for the 13th team, but the FIA did a backflip. There was obviously something we didn't know about."
On Wednesday, he tested his Ford Falcon for the Gold Coast 600 at Queensland Raceway.
