"FORMULA One pin-up Jacques Villeneuve has made a nifty off-the- track move on violinist Vanessa Mae.
The former world champion swept Singapore-born Vanessa, 20, off her feet at a go-karting tournament last month - and has since taken her on several secret dates.
A friend told the diary: "Vanessa has never really had a serious boyfriend before, but it was love at first sight when she met Jacques. She talks about him all the time."
Villeneuve, 27 - who earns pounds 5 million a year - is the self-styled wild boy of racing.
The Canadian-born driving ace, who split from his long-term student girlfriend Sandrine earlier this year, has shocked track officials with his rock'n'roll parties, Playboy photoshoots and trademark peroxide hair. And Violin prodigy Vanessa (pictured right) first shot to fame when she posed for a series of sexy cover shots for her debut album when she was just 16.
She's since sold over four million albums and - and appears on the covers of as many lads' magazines as she does classical music quarterlies.
The friend said: "They don't get to see each other that often because she's touring around Europe at the moment while he's busy testing cars for next season.
"But they get on brilliantly. Jacques is learning to play classical guitar - Vanessa is giving him a few pointers."
When they're not discussing the finer points of the g-string Jacques and Vanessa share hairdressing tips.
He's ditched his peroxide hair colour for brown - and she's chopped off her famous long hair for a short, funky look.
Isn't young love marvellous?"
