Villeneuve's engine damaged in transit
11 May 2006 – BMW driver Jacques Villeneuve will be set back ten places at Sunday's grid for the Spanish Grand Prix after the team had to change his engine before the weekend. The engine had to be changed after a problem transporting it to the Circuit de Catalunya which meant it sustained damage.
"The engine was fine after the European Grand Prix actually. During the transportation of the engine something went wrong unfortunately," a BMW spokesperson confirmed to F1Racing.net this afternoon.
Villeneuve has been showing stronger pace of late and has scored six points so far this season, one more than team mate Nick Heidfeld.
