Product description

More than 25 years after his death, the name of Gilles Villeneuve still conjures up images of an awesome talent working his magic at the wheel of a Ferrari on the racetracks of the world. For a brilliant, but tragically brief period, Villeneuve's precocious skills delighted Formula One fans and ensured the Canadian's place in the history books.

This film, made in 1983, pays tribute to a man expected to become the greatest driver ever, before cruel fate intervened at Zolder in May 1982. A skilful combination of action-packed racing footage and contributions from some of the biggest names in Grand Prix history creates an exceptional record of Villeneuve's extraordinary talents and personality.

Formula Villeneuve explores the aggressive style, natural talent, determined personality and drive to win which created a legend. Some of the race footage quality has suffered over the years, but the passage of time has not diminished the spectacular style and unswerving motivation of Gilles Villeneuve.

Among the greats who contribute are Juan Manuel Fangio, Stirling Moss, Alain Prost, Jody Scheckter, Niki Lauda, Mario Andretti, Patrick Tambay, Jacques Lafitte and Didier Pironi, whose own story is inextricably linked to Villeneuve's. We also hear from Villeneuve's widow Joann, journalists and fans.

Notably, this film also includes a rare interview with Enzo Ferrari. The 'Commendatore' had a notoriously difficult relationship with his drivers, but Villeneuve was one of the few to earn his complete admiration and respect - 'We were like father and son' Ferrari tells viewers.

Formula Villeneuve is a celebration of a true legend.
