Gilles gained notoriety and the attention of many teams after dominating the Formula Atlantic series in 1976 when he won both the US and Canadian Championships. He was given the opportunity to drive for the McLaren Formula 1 team in 1977. Gilles Villeneuve left McLaren to drive for Ferrari in 1978. He was immensely popular worldwide. He won a total of 6 Formula 1 races for Ferrari and finished second in the World Driver’s Championship in 1979. The image in this print depicts Gilles driving the Ferrari 312T4 during the 1979 season. Tragically Gilles Villeneuve had a terrible accident during qualifying for the Belgian Grand Prix at Zolder in 1982. His son, Jacques, succeeded him and went on to win the World Driver’s Championship in 1997. The racing world still mourns the loss of our beloved Gilles but his memory lives on forever.
