Reporting from a launch event at Monza, the Italian press said the 1997 world champion has signed up with Sky Italia to commentate during live broadcasts at all races this season.

Joining him will be Ferrari test driver Marc Gene, who switches over from Antena 3's Spanish coverage.

French Canadian Villeneuve, 41, is quoted by La Gazzetta dello Sport: "Watching the races on TV, sometimes I would get angry about what others are saying.

"Now maybe someone will get angry at me," laughed the outspoken former Williams, Honda and BMW driver.

11-time Grand Prix winner Villeneuve's late father, Gilles, is among the most revered Ferrari drivers of all time.
