Jacques Villeneuve avoided motor racing when his famous father was alive. It's surprising that he became a race car driver soon after Gilles Villeneuve's tragic death in a racing crash. After trying different types of racing, Jacques moved to Formula One racing in l996. He performed very well that year as a rookie and then won the world championship in l997. Jacques' story is quite a remarkable journey.
Ken Sparling wrote "Michael Schumacher," another book in the "Champion Sports Biography" series.
