“Winning; From Indy to F1”
Iconic, Candid, Unique
Winner of both the FIA Formula One World Championship and fabled Indianapolis 500, Jacques Villeneuve ranks alongside legends Mario Andretti and Emerson Fittipaldi as one of only three drivers alive today to have achieved that extraordinary feat. His talents saw him finish 2nd in the American ChampCar series at his first attempt, winning the title in his second year before transitioning to Formula One where he repeated that trajectory.
A remarkable 2nd in the World Championship to team mate Damon Hill in his debut season, Villeneuve won the Formula One title the following year, cementing his reputation as one of the finest driving talents to have emerged from North America. Winning 11 Grands Prix in total, Jacques’ Formula One career continued until 2006.
Today Jacques is an expert Formula One commentator on both French and Italian television, undertakes corporate appearances and is a partner in a race-track design company. Son of the late Gilles Villeneuve, the legendary Ferrari F1 driver who tragically lost his life in the 1982 Belgian Grand Prix, Jacques also represents one of the most iconic family names in the sport’s history.
