Villeneuve not planning F1 comeback

(GMM) Jacques Villeneuve says he has no plans to attempt a return to formula one.

"I don't want them and they don't want me," the 1997 world champion told the Canadian Press after relocating with his new wife and baby son from Switzerland to Montreal.

Villeneuve, 36 next week, split with the BMW-Sauber team mid way through last year after failing to win a grand prix since his championship season.

But although his F1 retirement was not voluntary, Jacques insists that he is "100 per cent happy" with his new life, which involves launching music albums and racing later this year in the famous Le Mans 24-hour event.

Referring to his defunct grand prix career, Villeneuve said: "It gave me time to do stuff I didn't think I would have time to do.

"It just panned out right."

He is still waiting for news about a ride in the NASCAR series but said he is "confident it will happen".
