There has only been one Formula One World Champion from Canada, Jacques Villeneuve, in the 1997 Formula One season. Jacque's father, Gilles Villeneuve finished second in the World Driving Championship in the 1979 Formula One season.
In 1997 Villeneuve fulfilled his fast and furious promise, winning seven races and taking the driving title in spectacular fashion from Michael Schumacher in a notorious championship showdown at Jerez in Spain. Schumacher's infamous failure to ram his rival off the road left the Ferrari superstar in disgrace and Villeneuve on the top of the world. It was a wonderfully dramatic story - the brave son of a racing legend who fended off a villain's worst efforts to become World Champion - that confirmed Villeneuve's place in Formula One history and folklore.
