Now a world champion in his own right Jacques Villeneuve is of French Canadian descent and holds a national civilian honour, the Order of Quebec, which he was given in 1998. He has been working as a professional race car driver since the early 1990’s and continues to maintain a successful career as a NASCAR driver.
