Jacques Villeneuve married his partner Giulia Marra in the new wedding chapel at the F1 Las Vegas Grand Prix paddock.
The couple got married in the newly-opened wedding chapel located inside the paddock in Sin City, also known as the Wedding Capital of the World. This chapel was set up inside the circuit with special F1 wedding packages, featuring the slogan ‘Race to the Altar’. Jacques Villeneuve, the 1997 world champion, became the first F1 driver to get married in a paddock and the wedding had F1-themed music and a traditional bridal entrance. The ceremony was officiated by an Elvis impersonator and Ferrari’s Jock Clear, who was Villeneuve’s championship-winning engineer, served as the best man. Villeneuve’s father, Gilles, was a legendary Ferrari driver who tragically lost his life during qualifying for the 1982 Belgian Grand Prix.
