This JV stuff is getting bizarre...

Is it a ruse? Are he and Williams playing coy to deflect attention? Or is there really nothing there?

And WTF is this Ferrari BS he's spewing? Like *that* will ever happen...

From Planet F1...

Jacques Villeneuve has for the first time commented on reports that he's in line for a job at Williams in 2005, strongly denying any link with his former team.

Villeneuve, who hasn't been in the cockpit of an F1 car since leaving BAR last season, was said to be one of the drivers favoured to take over from Juan Pablo Montoya or Ralf Schumacher, should the German decide to leave.

But Villeneuve, who won the 1997 World title with Williams, says these rumours are not true.

"I don't have any offers and I have never negotiated anything (with the team)," he told Montreal La Presse.

However, the Canadian is keen to drive if he is offered the opportunity and he even dreams of one day joining current World Champion, Michael Schumacher, at Ferrari.

"My father died at 32-years-old with Ferrari," Villeneuve said. "I'm now 33, it would ensure some continuity, he concluded.
