Six victories, two pole positions, eight fastest laps and 13 podium places - statistics that are anything but striking. In Formula 1 today, there are drivers who have won a great deal more, but Gilles Villeneuve cannot be evaluated by numbers alone- simply because there is no way of measuring the level of excitement that he brought to racing. Even though he has been dead for over 30 years, the legend of the Canadian, who was killed on 8 May 1982, is still imbued with strong emotion - Gilles the "Aviator" as Enzo Ferrari nick-named him, the driver for whom the expression "Villeneuve Fever" was coined.

From his "crazy flight" at Fuji in 1977, his first GP win at home in Canada in 1978, the unforgettable 1979 season followed by a year of purgatory, his epic success at Monaco in 1981 and the in-house duel with Didier Pironi at Imola in 1982, to that last "crazy flight" at Zolder. GILLES VILLENEUVE: Immagini di una vita/A life in pictures relives the legend, with previously unpublished pictures and authoritative text by Mario Donnini.

Book Description Nada, 2015. Condition: new. Vimodrone, 2015; ril., pp. 192, ill. (Grandi corse su strada e rallies). Sei vittorie, due pole position, otto giri veloci e tredici presenze sul podio. Cifre tutt'altro che eclatanti. Oggi, in F1, ci sono piloti che hanno vinto ben di più, almeno a giudicare con il freddo metro della matematica. Ma Gilles Villeneuve non può essere "misurato" con il calcolo perché non esiste un'unità di grandezza capace di definire le emozioni. Perché proprio questa è la sfera nella quale, oltre trent'anni dopo la scomparsa del piccolo canadese - era l'8 maggio 1982 - si muove ancora il mito di Gilles, "dell'Aviatore", come lo aveva soprannominato Ferrari, del solo pilota per il quale, in quegli anni, fu coniata l'espressione "Febbre Villeneuve". Il suo "folle volo" al Fuji nel 1977, la prima vittoria nel GP di casa, in Canada, nel 1978, l'indimenticabile stagione '79 seguita da un anno in Purgatorio, il 1980, ma anche l'epico successo a Monaco l'anno dopo, e ancora il duello fratricida con Didier Pironi, a Imola, nel 1982 e l'ultimo "folle volo" di Zolder. Istantanee di una storia che sa di leggenda e che oggi rivive in un libro ricco di immagini. Seller Inventory # 2965346
