Villeneuve resumes intensive training

Villeneuve resumes intensive training

for a 2010 comeback
Jacques Villeneuve is currently in Austria, where he is undergoing an intense physical training programme in preparation for a possible return to Formula One.

French-Canadian news site reports that Villeneuve is being watched over by Dr Erwin Gollner, renown by many F1 drivers for pushing human endurance to its limits when it comes to building strength and resistance.

"After warming up, the programme lasts 100 minutes and the longest pause is five seconds," Villeneuve said. "It's really, really brutal.

"Fortunately, Erwin hasn't sent me training in the sauna yet," he added. "For the time being I'm preparing for winter testing, so it will be slightly chilly.
However when the Bahrain preparation begins, I know that I won't escape it!"

The 1997 champion left F1 during the 2006 season, but the implementation of greatly revised technical regulations this year have strongly revived his interest. Villeneuve visited the paddock on several occasions this season, where he was seen talking with teams.

His return to intense training is a sign that he is being considered for a seat on the 2010 grid.

"Nothing is settled, but I like the direction things are taking," the Canadian said. "Do you really think I would come here to suffer, in a retreat, leaving my two boys far away, if I didn't believe things are moving along well?"
