Villeneuve to test drive for Renault
SILVERSTONE, England (AP) - Former Formula One world champion Jacques Villeneuve will test for Renault at Silverstone this week.
Renault said in a statement that the Iberville, Que., native would test at the site of the British Grand Prix on Wednesday and Thursday. He had a seat-fitting at the team's base on Tuesday.
``We have reached agreement for Jacques to test for the team,'' Renault managing director Flavio Briatore said.
``This test might lead to Jacques joining the team for the final three races of the season beginning next week at the Chinese Grand Prix.''
Renault's current drivers are Jarno Trulli and Fernando Alonso. It's third in the manufacturer's championship.
Villeneuve quit BAR-Honda with one race left in 2003 after he learned that the team planned to replace him this year with Japanese driver Takuma Sato. He was without a team this year.
He won the world championship in 1997 with Williams.
