Son of Gilles Villeneuve, Jacques is a famous Canadian race car driver (although he now calls Monaco home). Jacques won the CART Drivers Championship but got tired of driving around in circles. He joined the Williams Formula 1 team and quickly won the Drivers Championship there, too, despite Michael Schumacher's ramming his car. Jacques moved to the new British American Racing team in 1999 and has only finished two races so far.
