    5 Times Gilles Villeneuve seemed the greatest
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4NMfg_zB-A

    Published on Mar 3, 2017
    Gilles Villeneuve won only six of his 67 grands prix and has not a single world championship to his name. History, though, goes beyond numbers and will remember the diminutive French Canadian as one of the sport's greatest competitors.
    Perhaps Villeneuve's finest moment was his performance in a sodden practice session for the US Grand Prix East at Watkins Glen in 1979. His Ferrari team-mate Jody Scheckter, the new world champion, was confident of being comfortably fastest, until he looked at the timesheets; Villeneuve was over 9.5 seconds quicker.
    A horrific accident in qualifying for the 1982 Belgian Grand Prix ultimately claimed Villeneuve's life.

    Speaking at his funeral Scheckter said: "I will miss Gilles for two reasons. First, he was the fastest driver in the history of motor racing. Second, he was the most genuine man I have ever known."

    Legends of F1 Gilles Villeneuve
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QKM5b4jpAHk


    ostryer90684

    "His car control was extraordinary, ever compared with the many talented drivers I have had the opportunity to drive against over the years. He drove a Grand Prix car to the absolute limit of its ability." - Jackie Stewart on Gilles Villeneuve


    Tom Birchenough
    Gilles Villeneuve: a man who was born to race,a fantastic driver with courage and balls of steel. He would do stuff i think Senna would never do. Thats why he was one of the best. No matter what happened to the car,if his front wing was making him race blind or driving on 2-3 wheels,nothing would hold him back. Great respect for Gilles. RIP

    Gilles Villeneuve Watkins Glen 1979
    This is the race where everyone was surprised at the sheer speed of Gilles Villeneuve. Lapping faster than everyone in the wet until the later stages.

    Gilles Villeneuve and Ayrton Senna...a brief comparison

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dT9XytcT74c

    Both were VERY good in the wet.
    I have seen the Senna video on Tampa Racing. Senna could get within 3" of the
    guardrail when others were 6" away. It was said that Senna sometimes passed Through the guardrail.

    In the Senna video (go searching for it) Yes, it DOES look like he passes through the guardrail.

    Gilles Villeneuve

    Natures Law the final tribute:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6PRRc9Iov0

    By alex gibbons

    "I love motor racing. To me it's a sport, not a technical exercise. My deal Formula One car would be something like a McLaren M23 with a big normally aspirated engine, 800 hp, 21 inch rear tyres. A lot of people say we should have narrower tires, but I don't agree because you need big tyres to slow you down when you spin. And you need a lot of horsepower to unstick big tyres, to make the cars slide. That would be a bloody fantastic spectacle, That's the kind of entertainment I want to give the crowds. Smoke the tyres ! Yeah ! I [care about the fans], because I used to be one of them !" Gilles Villeneuve
