Post subject:  Jacques Villeneuve, Formula 1 Champion, joins Venturi Team


Villeneuve is the first Formula 1 world champion to drive the Formula E car and will become the first to compete in the fully-electric racing series when he takes to the grid for Venturi in the Beijing ePrix on October 17.

“I got in the car and immediately enjoyed it,” he said. “It drove like a proper single-seater and I was happily surprised by the feeling in the car and the team atmosphere was great. So it was an easy decision to do the full season. It’s a series that will keep getting faster and if you look at the rest of the racing world they try to make them slower, so that’s definitely a positive.”

As one of the most famous names in the series, Villeneuve is determined to be fighting at the front: “The aim is to be competitive and we’ll see where we are in Beijing. Some guys look quite quick already with the new technology but this is not a holiday, I’m here to compete.”
