Villeneuve Sticks with British American Racing
By JR Nerad
After a dreary 1999 campaign, former world champion Jacques Villeneuve ended speculation about his future at British American Racing, saying he would honor his contract with the Formula One team through 2000.
One of the deciding factors in his decision to stick around was the team's shift to Honda engines next year. The Canadian driver, who also had excellent success on the CART circuit, blamed reliability problems for many of his woes this season. Despite immense talent, he failed to score a single point in 1999.
