Villeneuve: "Robert Kubica may sabotage Williams car"

Robert Kubica may deliberately sabotage Williams' progress in order to boost his chances of returning to the grid. That is the sensational claim made by outspoken former world champion Jacques Villeneuve.

He was referring to his old team Williams, where the experienced Kubica is now the reserve driver in support of young race lineup Lance Stroll and Sergey Sirotkin ."It's difficult to assess the situation at Williams," Villeneuve told Sky Italia.

"At least at the tests, the car looked difficult to drive. The only one who was able to use its potential was Kubica. Robert is the driver who will most develop the car, and it's possible he will consciously make it difficult to drive for the other drivers," Villeneuve charged. "His dream is to race the car, not to be the third driver, and so I do not underestimate this point. In his situation I would do exactly the same," he admitted.

    Villeneuve really doesn't like Kubica.... or Stroll, or Sirotkin, or Williams.... but then, does anyone really like Villeneuve? Kubica has fans, does Villeneuve?

    • "I would do exactly the same" suggests it's not a matter of disliking the guy.

    • you don't vilify someone who you like; it's another negative comment about Robert; Villeneuve thinks Robert did evrything he could to replace him in 2006 playing some bad games behind his back but the fact is Jacques had really poor results back in 2006

  • Really Jacques?!
    Williams is struggling for several years now and now Kubica is the one who did it.
    Really based on facts

    Why give this guy any attention at all ? Every time he opens his mouth out comes another stupid comment. Best to just ignore him.

  • Ridiculous, it's not as if there was no telemetry overseeing every aspect of the car. You can't "sabotage" the car the way Jaques suggested .
