A tribute to Gilles Villeneuve

Please view my last ever Gilles vid, here: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=W6PRRc9Iov GILLES VILLENEUVE 1950-1982 Villeneuve was a curious mixture of seemingly disparate personality types. Lauda wrote of him, "He was the craziest devil I ever came across in Formula 1... The fact that, for all this, he was a sensitive and lovable character rather than an out-and-out hell-raiser made him such a unique human being". Flying, snowmobiling or driving, he was a risk-taker of classic proportions. Yet his fellow drivers said that on the track he was scrupulously fair and did not put anyone's safety other than his own in jeopardy. An absolute nutter on the racetrack, but a family man off it.
