We all enjoy speaking to drivers for the regular 'Race of My Life' feature at the back of AUTOSPORT magazine. So when you get the chance to chat to a driver you cheered for as a kid you hope that he's up for it.
Fortunately for me, in June this year Jacques Villeneuve was well and truly up for it.
'Race of My Life' runs to about 500 words, but when he had finished telling the tale of his 1995 Indianapolis 500 win I had over 1300 words at my disposal. His recollection of the race was superb, and it took me back to that fascinating event.
