Jacques Villeneuve Will Drive Father's F1 Ferrari around Fiorano

Jacques Villeneuve Will Drive Father's F1 Ferrari around Fiorano

Jacques Villeneuve will get the opportunity to drive his father, Gilles, Ferrari 312 T4 around Ferrari's Fiorano test track. 

Jacques will drive his father's 312 T4 on May 4. It will be the 30th anniversary of his father's death. Villeneuve and Jody Schekter won the Constructors' World Championship for Ferrari in 1979.

Gilles Villeneuve was second in the Formula 1 Drivers' World Championship in 1979 in the Ferrari. He died in 1982 in an accident during qualifying at the Zolder circuit in Belgium. His son, Jaques, was champion of the Indy Car Series in 1995 and Formula 1 World Champion in 1997. Since leaving Formula 1 in 2006, he has raced in Nascar and at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2007 and 2008. 

Below you can see the iconic video of VIlleneuve racing against Rene Arnoux for second place at the 1979 French Grand Prix.
