F1 - 1979 Zandvoort GP - G. Villeneuve driving on two wheels
Gilles Villeneuve, who made it through the first lap ahead of Jean-Pierre Jabouille, passed Jones at Tarzan on lap 11. He gave the lead back to Jones when he spun on lap 47. On lap 51, just after passing the pits, Villeneuve's left rear tyre exploded causing him to spin. He regained control to begin one of the wildest laps in history. He drove an entire lap on two tyres, the right front was in the air and the left rear was shredding rubber and sparking with the pavement. Reaction was mixed. It was either an act of the ultimate competitor not wanting to give up or an irresponsible, emotional decision. Either way he was out as his suspension was too damaged to rejoin the race.
F1 - 1969 Monaco GP - Race report
The entry for Monaco was much as normal although Jochen Rindt was still
recovering from breaking his nose in his crash in Barcelona and so Team
Lotus ran Richard Attwood as his replacement alongside Graham Hill. The
field was bolstered by the reappearance of Silvio Moser in an old Brabham
and Vic Elford running in an old Cooper-Maserati entered, aptly, by Antique
Automobiles. There had been considerable worry expressed since the crashes
in Barcelona about the high rear wings used on the cars and after the first
practice the CSI held a meeting and decided on an immediate ban on the
grounds of safety. The first session times were canceled and the qualifying
process started all over again. There were some gripes from the teams but
everyone got down to business and it was Jackie Stewart's Matra which
emerged on pole, ahead of Chris Amon's Ferrari. Jean-Pierre Beltoise in the
second Matra was third on the grid, ahead of Graham Hill while Jo Siffert
(Walker-Durlacher Lotus) and John Surtees (BRM) shared the third row. The
Brabhams of Jacky Ickx and Jack Brabham were on the fourth row, just ahead
of Piers Courage in Frank Williams's customer BT26.
Stewart took the lead at the start with Amon in pursuit. Beltoise was under
pressure from Hill and the Lotus driver moved to third on the third lap. By
lap 10 Stewart had a 10-second advantage. In the midfield Surtees suffered
a gearbox failure in the tunnel and was hit by Brabham. Both drivers
escaped injury. Six laps later Amon's Ferrari retired with a differential
failure and on lap 21 Beltoise's Matra suffered a driveshaft failure and
retired from third place. A lap later the leader Stewart had an identical
problem with his Matra and retired. This left Hill in the lead with a 12
second advantage over Ickx and Courage. The battle for second place
continued until the 49th lap when the Belgian retired with a rear
suspension failure, leaving Courage to finish an impressive second while
Siffert picked up third.
Flamethrower Ferrari F1 126C2 ex Gilles Villeneuve - EPIC!
Today I've recorded the ex Formula One car of Gilles Villeneuve during the
Modena Trackdays on circuit Spa Francorchamps. This Ferrari 126CK was the
car with which Ferrari raced in the 1981 Formula One season. This Ferrari
is powered by a 1.5 liter V6 turbo,
which its power Boosted to 650bhp in
qualifying trim and around 600bhp in races. In this video you can see it in
action with some amazing flames coming out from the Exhaust pipes.

Joseph Gilles Henri Villeneuve
Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu 18 Gennaio 1950 ( Canada )
Lovanio 8 Maggio 1982 ( Belgio )
È l'8 maggio 1982, ore 13:52 a Zolder, mancano pochi minuti al termine
delle qualifiche del sabato: Villeneuve è indietro, è sesto. È
soprattutto dietro a "quello lì" come ora chiama Didier, che è terzo.
Gilles, ormai in procinto di rientrare ai box su ordine del direttore
tecnico Mauro Forghieri, affronta la chicane alle spalle dei box e
successivamente la discesa che immette alla curva 'Terlamenbocht', la curva
del bosco. È in quinta piena quando improvvisamente si trova davanti la
più lenta March numero 17, guidata da Jochen Mass, il quale lo vede
arrivare e si sposta subito a destra, pensando che il canadese lo superi a
sinistra; Villeneuve, invece, nella stessa frazione di secondo pensa che
Mass si sposti a sinistra, perché vuole affrontare la Terlamen
all'interno, lungo la traiettoria più veloce, e anch'egli va quindi verso
destra. La collisione è inevitabile: la Ferrari numero 27 urta, con la
ruota anteriore sinistra, quella posteriore destra di Mass. La vettura
decolla, fa alcune piroette in aria per poi schiantarsi violentemente
contro un terrapieno a bordo pista, inpuntandosi nella terra molle con la
tremenda energia cinetica di un'auto lanciata a 260 km/h che rilancia la
vettura in aria, priva di gran parte dell'avantreno.
Gilles fu proiettato, con le cinture di sicurezza divelte che si
trascinavano dietro ancora il sedile della sua Ferrari, contro le reti di
protezione; atterrò sulla spalla destra e con il corpo strappò la prima
rete di protezione; successivamente, sbatté violentemente il collo su un
paletto di sostegno della seconda rete metallica. Nell'urto il casco si
strappò e rotolò vicino a lui.
Immediatamente soccorso, apparve subito evidente che le sue condizioni
erano gravissime: il pilota era cianotico e con il viso ed il collo
edematosi. Gli fu effettuato il massaggio cardiaco e venne trasportato in
elicottero alla clinica universitaria di Lovanio: un'equipe di medici
rianimatori era già pronta per prestargli le prime cure, ma essi si
trovarono di fronte ad un corpo inanimato che presentava solo deboli segni
di attività vegetativa e si resero conto che non c'era più nulla da fare.
Infatti, la diagnosi fu rapida e sconsolante: l'impatto con quel paletto,
la tremenda decelerazione (calcolata in 27g) o, più probabilmente, la
violentissima trazione esercitata sul collo dalle cinture di sicurezza nel
momento in cui il sedile si era staccato dal telaio, avevano causato una
lesione del tronco encefalico e la rottura (con conseguente distacco) delle
vertebre cervicali con gravissime lesioni midollari. In poche parole, il
cervello non mandava più impulsi al cuore che, insieme all'apparato
respiratorio, svolgeva ancora le sue funzioni praticamente per inerzia.
Gilles, ricoverato in terapia intensiva, fu dichiarato clinicamente morto
alle 21:00 ora locale. I medici dichiararono che se anche, per assurdo,
egli fosse sopravvissuto, sarebbe comunque rimasto paralizzato dal collo in
giù ed in uno stato puramente vegetativo per quel che gli sarebbe restato
da vivere. Ricevuta questa infausta prognosi, alle ore 21:12 la moglie
Johanna diede l'autorizzazione a staccare la macchina cuore-polmone che lo
teneva in vita.
Il corpo di Gilles fu riportato in Canada il giorno successivo; dopo le
esequie a Berthierville, la salma del pilota fu cremata. Da allora, Gilles
Villeneuve è entrato nella storia e, pur non avendo mai vinto un titolo
mondiale, la sua breve, ma intensa carriera ha fatto di lui un mito della
« Se è vero che la vita di un essere umano è come un film, io ho avuto
il privilegio di essere la comparsa, lo sceneggiatore, l'attore
protagonista e il regista del mio modo di vivere. »
Ferrari F1 V6 vs V12 PURE Sounds!
I have filmed a group of V6 and V12 powered Ferrari Formula 1 cars from the
past, such as the F1 F93, 412 T2 and 126CK. The sound of these good old
V12s was just deafening and it was truly awesome to hear these glorious F1s
racing around SPA-Francorchamps, one of the most legendary racetracks of
F1 - 1980 Imola GP - Gilles Villeneuve crash
The 1980 Italian Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held on September
14, 1980 at the Imola Circuit in Italy. It was the twelfth race of the 1980
Formula One season.
This was the only World Championship Italian Grand Prix that was not held
at Monza, however Imola was used the following year to host the San Marino
Le Mans - 1959 - Highlights
The 1959 24 Hours of Le Mans was the 27th Grand Prix of Endurance, and took
place on June 20 and 21 1959. It was also the fourth round of the World
F1 - 1980 Monaco GP - Derek Daly crash
The 1980 Monaco Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Monaco on
May 18, 1980. It was the sixth round of the 1980 Formula One season. The
race was the 38th Monaco Grand Prix. The race was held over 76 laps of the
3.34-kilometre circuit for a total race distance of 254 kilometres.
It was won by Carlos Reutemann driving a Williams FW07B. The win was
Reutermann's tenth Formula One victory and his first since the 1978 United
States Grand Prix. He also became the fifth winner in six races of the 1980
season. Reutemann won by 1 minute and 13 seconds over French driver Jacques
Laffite driving Ligier JS11/15. Third was Brazilian driver Nelson Piquet
driving a Brabham BT49. Piquet's third place moved him past René Arnoux
and Alan Jones into the lead of the world championship for the first time.
The race however is remembered for a memorable and spectacular crash at the
start of the race when Derek Daly collided with Bruno Giacomelli's Alfa
Romeo 179, which sent Daly's Tyrrell 010 flying over Giacomelli and landing
between teammate Jean-Pierre Jarier and Alain Prost's McLaren M29. All four
drivers were out on the spot, but none suffered any serious injury. Jan
Lammers also collected damage in his ATS D4 but was able to continue. The
accident was particularly disappointing for McLaren after John Watson
failed to qualify for Monaco's shortened 20 car grid.
Fourth was West German driver Jochen Mass driving an Arrows A3 one lap down
on Reutemann ahead of Canadian Gilles Villeneuve in a Ferrari 312T5. A
further lap down in sixth was dual-World Champion Emerson Fittipaldi in a
Fittipaldi F7. For Mass and Fittipaldi it would be last world championship
points they would collect.
Reutemann's win put Williams in the lead of the constructor's points race
by five points over Ligier.
