Jacques Joseph Charles Villeneuve (born 9 April 1971) is a Canadian motor racing driver and amateur musician. He is the son of Formula One driver Gilles Villeneuve, and is the namesake of his uncle, who was also a racer. Jacques Villeneuve won the 1995 CART Championship, the 1995 Indianapolis 500 and the 1997 Formula One World Championship, making him the third driver after Mario Andretti and Emerson Fittipaldi to achieve such a feat. To date, no other Canadian driver has won the Indianapolis 500 or the F1 Drivers' title.
