Eighteen years after his father drove for the first time a F1 on the same track, Jacques Villeneuve made his F1 debut today at Silverstone, testing for Williams. Here are the results for this first day:

Hill           1'29"14
Villeneuve     1'30"02
Irvine         1'31"59
Hakkinen       1'31"82

8/10 of a second behind Hill: not bad for a first time... One or two days more of testing and Jacquot should be in front of Super Damon.

After the testings, he said in interview that it was a little bit easier than he first thought. He also said that there is less difference between a F1 and an Indy than he expected. Being his usual calm, Jacquot then said that he will start to 'play' with the set-up of the car tomorrow.
