ESTORIL TEST Feb 5th, 1996. 1. Jacques Villeneuve Williams-Renault 1:38.69. 2. Heinz-Harald Frentzen Sauber-Ford 1:41.53. Jacques Villeneuve emerged safely after spinning his Wil- liams-Renault FW17 during testing at the 4.360-kilometre Estoril circuit today. Villeneuve spun while braking for the hairpin and damaged the front and rear bodywork of the car. Bad weather conditions forced the team to abandon the session early. Ville- neuve, who completed 50 laps despite heavy rain will finish the test tomorrow (Tuesday). Frentzen also spun his Sauber-Ford several times.
