ESTORIL, Portugal, Jan 15 - Jacques Villeneuve headed his Williams-Renault team mate Damon Hill as Formula One testing continued here today. Heavy overnight rain left the Lisbon-area track soaked but Villeneuve, who completed a total of 52 laps during the afternoon session managed a best time of 1:21.7. Hill drove only eight laps in the morning and a further 27 in the afternoon. His quickest lap time at the 4.360-kilometre circuit was 1:22.1. McLaren-Mercedes, who tested in Estoril last week, were due to resume on Tuesday with Alain Prost scheduled to act as special advisor to David Coulthard.

Michael --- þ 1st 1.11 #8604 þ Nothing can be made foolproof, as fools are so ingenious.
