The 2000 Formula 1 season marked the second year for Jacques behind the wheel of a BAR Lucky Strike Honda. Jacques finished 7th in the Championship with 17 points, his best finish was 4th and he achieved that on 4 separate occasions. This Bell K-1 helmet was painted by Bell SPORTS Europe and is tagged 2000-08. Bell has also added a small sticker of the flag of Monaco to signify the helmet was used during the 2000 Monaco Grand Prix weekend, held June 2-4 at the Circuit de Monaco in Monte-Carlo where Jacques started 17th and finished 7th. Jacques has added extra eye-port foam and has closed off most of the air vents with heli-tape to reduce air flow into the helmet. There are still a number of tear-offs remaining on the visor which is signed by Villeneuve who also signed the chin strap. This particular helmet had the interior neck roll and race radio removed, as it was most likely used again in another helmet. Even with the neck roll missing the helmet displays very nicely and is a great item from a World Champion used during one of Formula 1’s premier events. Also included is the original Bell carrying bag with “J.V. 00-08” handwritten annotations. This item is from Jacques Villeneuve’s personal collection and will come with his signed LOA.
