FORMULA ONE: Jacques is back.
The 33-year-old Canadian has agreed a two-year contract with Sauber to replace Giancarlo Fisichella, who is leaving for Renault at the end of the season.
But Villeneuve, who has been out of the sport since he left BAR with one race of last season remaining, may return earlier than expected after Jarno Trulli was sacked by Renault.
The 1997 world champion was testing for Renault at Silverstone on Tuesday and depending on his performance, he may replace Trulli for the final three races of the season.
He said: ``I am extremely excited to be back in Formula One. ''
