    Agreed. The likes of Gilles have been missing from F1 for a long, long time. I was privileged to see him drive at Long Beach in 1982, where he finished 3rd but as DQ’d for an “illegal” rear wing.

    If i have been granted one priviledge in my life, it was that i saw this man drive. The greatest driver in Grand Prix history without a doubt. Senna, Schumacher? Can you imagine Gilles even THINKING about pulling stunts like those that occured at Suzuka 1990 or Adelaide 1994 / Jerez 1997.
