Martin Brundle has scolded former F1 rival Jacques Villeneuve, after the 1997 world champion attacked the sport’s new V6 era.

Martin_Brundle-sky-sportsAs his new foray in the world rallycross series was launched last week, 42-year-old French Canadian Villeneuve slammed not only F1’s new ‘greener’ guise, he also denounced the drivers of 2014 as “mediocre”. “(It) angers me when former F1 drivers stick a boot into F1 for publicity,” Brundle, now a highly-respected commentator for British television, wrote on Twitter, without referring to Villeneuve by name. “They had privileged chances, success, cash. Give something positive back,” he added.
