1997 Jacques Villeneuve Signed Race Worn World Championship Season Williams Renault F1 Gloves
These well-worn Sparco race gloves were used by Canadian driver Jacques Villeneuve while on his way to winning the 1997 Formula 1 World Championship.
Villeneuve was in his second year with the Rothmans Williams F1 team. After being the championship runner-up to teammate Damon Hill in 1996, he was made the team’s lead driver for the following season and he did not disappoint, winning seven races and scoring points in four of the other races he finished in giving him an unassailable eighty-one points and the 1997 title.
The blue, long-cuff gloves have tan leather knuckle protection sections and Velcro fastening straps. The inner palms also have tan leather protection as well as the fingers. Both of the gloves’ knuckle protectors have been personally signed by Villeneuve with a black marker pen.
These gloves come from Villeneuve’s personal collection and come with a Certificate Of Authenticity.
