'It is true to say that I had the greatest difficulty putting this book down. Don't miss it! Murray Walker Regarded as one of the best drivers never to win the Formula One title, Gilles Villeneuve became a legend in his own lifetime, a driver whose skill and daring personified the ideals of Grand Prix racing, the pinnacle of motor sport. With his flamboyantly aggressive. press-on-regardless style in his scarlet Ferrari, he captured the imagination of a vast international audience as no other driver has in recent times until his tragic death in practice at the 1982 Belgian Grand Prix - after a controversial incident with team mate Didier Pironi, who had stolen victory from him two weeks previously in San Marino. Gerald Donaldson covered Villeneuve's first and last Formula One races and many of those in between. In this authoritative biography, available for the first time in paperback. Donaldson captures all the drama and emotion, humour and heartbreak of a life lived at the limit.
