    Certainly had the most spectacular driving style of any Ferrari driver, really never ever gave up.

    To me one of the best, a driver that loved driving.

    If I could only show someone one picture to represent the essence of the "terrible joys" of Formula One it would be Gilles in his Ferrari; sideways with opposite lock. Thanks Gilles for igniting my love of F1!

    Nice touch to bring the 308 there. Great museum. As Gilles fan you should also drive Trois Rivieres. all public roads.

    Showroom or F1 forum might be the most appropriate. It shouldnt matter where with pictures that good. What corner was this at? I was there this year, what an awesome time.

    I posted them over in the F1 section but tags dont seem to be working like they do here. I was at grandstand 22, I forget what number the corner was exactly.

    I just picked up a case of Gilles Villeneuve commemorative wine (in honor of the 30th anniversary of his passing), with proceeds going to the Gilles Villeneuve museum. Not a bad wine it is.

    Sad pics. I remember that weekend well. It is actually a good thing that he didn't survive because he'd be basically a vegetable.

    I recommend the museum to anybody going to Montreal.

    PS: currently building a model of the 126C2

    Love the name of the wine, when I was a kid building wooden go karts and push-racing down the street, my father always wrote the number 27 on the front.

    Awesome.

    My fav Gilles memory is seeing him at the 81 German GP in Hockenheim. He sat in his Ferrari in the garage. I took a picture of him and the car and on the shot he just intensely stares right into the camera.

    Actually, no.27 was Gilles Villeneuve's number in 81 and 82 and that number is the one most closely associated to him by his fans.

    Don't remember any of my childhood friends idolizing Alan Jones
