Jacques Laffite (born 21 November 1943 in Paris) is a French former racing driver who competed in Formula One from 1974 to 1986. He achieved six Grand Prix wins in 176 starts, all while driving for the Ligier team.

A very nice and laid-back person, Jacques Laffite: “Guy Ligier was my boss first, then my friend. We were in symbiosis. He was like a second father in my racing career. he really cared about me. He was a fantastic person human-wise and he was a friend you could always count on, very reliable and courageous. I was very lucky to meet him. I did Le Mans with him and then I was part of the great F1 adventure.”
