About

Jacques Villeneuve

The son of famed Ferrari F1 driver Gilles Villeneuve, Jacques showed supreme talent behind the wheel, winning the North American Indycar Series and the Indy 500 before transferring to Formula 1. Qualifying on pole position in his debut Formula 1 race at the 1996 Australian Grand Prix, Jacques went on to finish a remarkable second in the World Championship at his first attempt.

Driving for Williams, Jacques then won the 1997 Formula One World Championship despite facing strong competition from team mate Damon Hill and a determined challenge from Ferrari’s Michael Schumacher.  Jacques remains the last driver to have won the Formula 1 World Championship for the Williams team.

He speaks fluent English, Italian and French.
