Former F1 world champion Jacques Villeneuve added a whole new dimension to the excitement of the inaugural Las Vegas Grand Prix, as he and his partner were married in a specially built chapel in the paddock on November 16.

As part of the Race to the Altar campaign, the Las Vegas Grand Prix paddock was transformed into a chapel, and this unique initiative attracted several couples to get married, including Villeneuve and his new wife Marra, at the brand-new F1 venue!
