Can anyone help me with this please? It's a little urgent. I bought this cap for a friend, I thought it was a Jacques Villeneuve, circa 1998 ish, Williams hat. Can anyone tell me who wore this hat and when? (click the picture for a larger view)

So possibly Jacques' hat? I can't find anything on the internet to confirm that. Anyone have any pictures from 1998 showing him with that hat?

Winfield sponsored Williams in 1998 & 1999 and JV was still their driver in 1998.

maybe this picture could help you, although the hat is a bit different.

Oh thank you! I took a look and it looks like Sonax wasn't a sponsor in 1999 (looking at Ralf's overalls) so I'm almost 100% positive it's 1998. Whether it's Heinz-Harold's or Jacques' doesn't really matter. I'm giving it as a gift to a Jacques fan. She'll love it!

Cheers! @Beer

sonax was a sponsor in 1998. Look at JV's shoulders in the pic I posted.

Exactly. I saw the Sonax in the '98 picture but I can't see it in any '99 pics. Therefore, it's either Jacques or H-H's hat!
