On the day 11-times grand prix winner Jacques Villeneuve signed up for the new World Rallycross Championship, the famously outspoken Canadian chatted to Sky Sports News about some of the biggest talking points heading into the 2014 F1 season.

Michael Schumacher was your great rival when you won your world title in 1997, how has his accident and situation affected you?
"I was really shocked. The effect is more on his family, that's where it is really, really hard because they are waiting and they have no idea what will happen. That's a terrible position to be in. "It can happen to any of us, in any situation. We all live on the edge and Michael certainly did. That's how he won his championships. He went motorbike racing. He needed that adrenaline to kick in and he needed to always overcome himself basically." The Sky Sports F1 Online team will be providing live commentary of all three winter tests with live updates from trackside also on Sky Sports News. The next test, in Bahrain, begins on Wednesday February 19.
