Mais, oui! NASCAR developing a French connection?
The Villeneuve rumor seems very likely to be accurate, after this weekend's announcement that the French-Canadian driver was being permanently replaced at BMW-Sauber by Polish test driver Robert Kubica. Villeneuve is known to have been talking to several NASCAR teams in recent months, and his departure from BMW is likely to mean the end of his Formula 1 career.
Champ car's French-Canadian veteran Tagliani has had trouble lining up a front-running ride over the last two years, and may be looking to refresh his career with a change of venue.
