Description

Jacques Villeneuve has recently taken the world of motor racing by storm, and is now widely regarded as one of the best racing drivers in the world; not surprising, perhaps, for the only son of racing giant Gilles Villeneuve. This biography tells of his childhood and sporting prowess. He learned to ski in Switzerland, reputedly well enough to have become an international-class competitor, before deciding to follow in his father's footsteps and take up motor racing. The book also shows what he is like now, at 25, having excelled in IndyCar where he won the World Series Driver's title before moving into the arena once dominated by his father - Formula One. Ever the individual, he chose not to go to Ferrari, his father's old team, but insteand to Williams, a team hit hard by the loss of Ayrton Senna. Timothy Collings is the author of "Schumacher".show more
