Gilles Villeneuve : 30 years ago today at Zolder

I am a little sad right now, remembering how great a driver he was. I get a smile on my face when I see his track prowess in videos, but then I get sad again knowing no one in F1 lately is as intense as he was.

Here are a few articles on remembering him...

From The Sun in the UK
