Gilles Villeneuve is one of those names that fire the imagination of fans like very few others.
But his human and sports career is also known to the public because his epic deeds in Formula 1, his intense relationship with Enzo Ferrari, his great humanity and his tragic and spectacular end have left a mark on the collective consciousness.
Forty years after that 8 May 1982, this book retraces the seasons that the flying Canadian spent at Maranello - years in which the private Gilles dined at the court of the Grand Old Man and the indomitable driver excited the crowds with his victories, but above all with the courage he showed in duels that became epic and by never giving up.
Through the exclusive testimonies of those who were close to him in those years, this book also wants to shed light on the Villeneuve man with all his fragility in spite of the public image of a driver without brakes and without fears.
Gilles has gone away, but today he is still here to act as a comparison, as a benchmark, as those English who discovered him say, but did not value him because they probably did not understand him. It took all of old Ferrari's sensitivity to understand him. Forty years after his death, Gilles Villeneuve is more alive than ever.
And he will be in another ten, twenty, a hundred years. Because some drivers never die.
