It was announced today that 1997 Formula One world champion Jacques Villeneuve is to start a new career in yet another form of motorsport.
Having achieved ultimate glory in the highest form of motorsport over 16 years ago, Villeneuve endured varying levels of success at Le Mans and NASCAR and would easily be forgiven for hanging up his gloves and helmet.
But once a racer, always a racer and Villeneuve has decided to compete in the new World Rallycross Championship with Albatec Racing.
Here are five others who have continued to enjoy successful racing careers after life in F1.
For the purposes of the list, drivers who have enjoyed brief stints in motorsport series before returning to F1 again, such as Kimi Raikkonen and Nigel Mansell, have been discounted.
