No Looking Back Jacques Villeneuve, former world champion and current frequent backmarker for British-American Racing is suggesting a radical change to the cars. By removing the rearview mirrors, he thinks that there will be less defensive driving and thus more passing. It's possible, although the extremely limited range of head movement that a modern racing driver has would make it almost impossible to be aware of a car alongside you, which it seems would increas the likelihood of a collision in corners.
