Will BMW can Villeneuve?

BMW’s announcement last week that they are taking the controlling interest in the Sauber team for 2006 and will announce its driver lineup in January could be bad news for Jacques Villeneuve who has a contract with Peter Sauber’s team that runs until the end of the 2006 season.

"I feel quite good about next year, because yes contracts are breakable but it all depends how it is written," Villeneuve said in an interview with TSN. “Peter Sauber and I, when we met and started talking, we both decided to have a short contract without twenty million ways of screwing each other up, basically, so there is not many ways to break the contract."

"The new structure with managerial and key positions, including the driver line-up, and the name of the new team will be worked out by the takeover date of 1st January 2006," last week's announcement from BMW stated. "Development of resources are being driven forward with urgency and immediate effect."
