Welcome to the forum daniel 8) I hope you enjoy your time here.

Maybe Amazon would have a lot of that kind of thing with their Kindle electronic book, not sure how many of that kind of books they'd have though. Might be worth a look though.

Who lift their hands up high because they feel this
We are one, we are strong
The more you hold us down, the more we press on

30 years ago to this day the greatest driver who ever lived sadly met his death at Zolder. Now as back then I am proud to say "ho la febbre Villeneuve"!!!

It is 30 years ago today Paolo and as a mark of respect Ferrari are allowing Jacques to drive his dad's old car. I think that's very decent of them :shiny:

You see Lyria doubling up on her posts because she thinks nobody reads the history forum? :noway: That's what I call another way to raise your post count.

I was not just trying to raise my post count, I was offering the good forumers here at gp.com the chance to see something they might otherwise have missed :p

Aaaah, but you don't deny that raising your post count was one of your motives. Hmmm, what's that word again? Oh yeah: GOTCHA :exclaim: :hihi:

A great legend, a great man, and a great loss indeed. I especially loved his super flamboyant driving style, and how despite that the man seemed to have a knack for tyre preservation. His fantastic drives really were amazing - how he could hold off faster cars for (almost) entire race distances. A gentleman too - considering how readily he supported Sheckter that year, fully trusting that Sheckter would have repaid the favor the next year.

People go on about how Senna outqualified Prost by, what was it? A second? At monaco. Then I remember how Gilles outqualified the rest of the field by 9 or 11 seconds. I think that was Long Beach 1979

I know I'm probably in a small minority here - but in my eyes I have always held him in equal regard to Senna as the two greatest drivers to have entered and left the sport, the two edging out Jim Clark (a close 3rd in my list)
