Jacques Villeneuve was not in Indianapolis in person on Wednesday when it was announced he would be back in that city in three months time to attempt a comeback in the 2014 Indianapolis 500, a race he won in 1995.

There are plenty of questions about whether the 1997 Formula 1 world champion still has what it takes to tackle 500 miles at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Villeneuve, 42, won't get much testing time in a car he has never even sat in, as he is committed to racing through to the first week in May in the World RallyCross Racing series in Europe.

But that doesn't seems to bother him.
