‘Liar’ Schu slammed as Jacques attacks

Thu, 17 August 2006, 12:37

Jacques Villeneuve has launched a scathing attack on his former formula one nemesis, Michael Schumacher.

In an interview, to be headlined as ‘Jacques Attacks’ on the cover of ‘F1 Racing’ magazine next week, the axed BMW-Sauber racer branded Schumacher – the seven time world champion – as bland and a liar.

French-Canadian Villeneuve, 35, said: ”I think the day he hangs up his helmet people will just forget him.”

Referring to Senna, Prost and Mansell, JV added that ‘those people attained a hero status that Michael never has and never will’.

Villeneuve and Schumacher’s acrimony dates back to 1997, where at Jerez they collided at the climax of their championship duel.

”Michael simply isn’t a great champion,” Jacques continued, ”because he’s played too many dirty tricks and because he isn’t a great human being.”

Villeneuve, who resigned from the drivers’ GPDA body after the infamous Rascasse affair at Monaco this year, also accuses Schumacher, 37, of being a ‘liar’.

”He lies not only to fans but to his fellow drivers, too. He just stared in our eyes and lied.

”He thinks he’s bigger than the sport, and when he retires, and no one really remembers him, that will become clear.”
