Villeneuve's quest for the 24h at LeMans.
Jacques Villeneuve was on board of a Peugeot 908 HDi-FAP for this year's edition of the 24 hours race at le Mans, France.
Along with teammates Nicolas Minassian and Marc Gené, the trio did fairly well on the famous 13.629 km long racetrack as they were ranked 3rd for the major part of the race.
But with only 1h30 left to the race, their Peugeot experienced engine problems forcing the team to retire from the competition. Overall, this first experience for Villeneuve was positive, he declared that he really enjoyed the experience. We can bet that Jacques Villeneuve will try again to win this prestigious race, the only single race victory missing in his racing career.
Only Grahame Hill managed to win the racing triple crown consisting in a F-1 driver championship, a Indianapolis 500 victory and the 24h le Mans victory. Villeneuve is only one le Mans away from re-editing Hill's accomplishment.
