Everybody loves a Las Vegas wedding!

Even former Formula 1 champion Jacques Villeneuve, appears.

Villeneuve, 52, was the 1997 series champion while driving for the legendary Williams team after finishing second the year prior.

The Canadian, whose father Gilles previously raced for Ferrari, married his partner Giulia Marra in a wedding chapel located in the Las Vegas Grand Prix paddock.

The new chapel was set up inside the circuit offering special F1 wedding packages featuring the slogan “Race to the Altar.”

It even featured a full-on Elvis impersonator as the wedding officiant.

Marra also serves as Villeneuve’s agent and the pair recently had a child together, Villeneuve’s sixth across multiple marriages.

The marriage completes what has been a strange 2023 for the former F1 star. He was supposed to drive in the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans for Vanwall racing but was later dropped from the team.

In response, he quit the team altogether.

“To date, I have not received any official communication from the team, which is even more surprising given that I am still under contract to participate in the Le Mans 24 Hours,” he said of the decision.

“The timing of the release strangely coincided with my impending arrival at the hospital for the birth of our baby daughter, which had been planned for 26 May.”

“ByKolles was well aware of this personal family event, rendering me unable to respond or address this sudden announcement.”

Villleneuve did not return to the team. But clearly things have since begun to look up for him.
