    One thought on “Gilles Villeneuve: The Life of the Legendary Racing Driver”

    1. 'I know that some day I am going to have a really big crash'Unfortunately that day came and claimed the life of arguably the fastest and purest Formula One driver the sport has ever seen. Gerald Donaldson does a spectacular job of telling the story of the legendary Canadian driver Gilles Villeneuve. The book starts right at the beginning. Donaldson takes the reader on a journey through Gille's life from his early days growing up in Quebec to that sad unforgettable day in May 1982. Gilles lived h [...]

    2. Gilles Villeneuve was a fascinating character and a real racer, more interested in simply being the fastest than winning championships. And Gerald Donaldson tells his story very well. I had a few minor complaints - for example I would have liked to understand more about Villeneuve’s relationship with Pironi.

Hard to believe that someone so awesome had someone so lame as Jacques Villeneuve for a son.
