Any books, DVD’s, YouTube, podcast related nostalgia stuff you’ve seen lately? I take it we’ve all got a bit of spare time on our hands!

Watches some AGP support races the other day from the Adelaide GP era. Most of those races were gems

Speaking of Beyond The Grid, the latest one is with Alex Zanardi...

Regarding FbF's reference to Gilles Villeneuve's 1978 Canadian GP win. Listening to Riccardo Patrese's Beyond The Grid podcast interview, that race might've been a career saver for Villeneuve!

He had an unremarkable season to that point, and I think Enzo Ferrari was under some pressure to ditch him for 78. Patrese had some sort of agreement to join Ferrari for 79 had circumstances eventuated. But Villeneuve's Montreal win justified Ferrari's position in keeping him.

I have just ordered Bathurst Greatest Hits Volume 3 2002-2015 - should be a good watch to relive all those crashes.

I read a story from it on Sleuths website. HRT could've been very different had things worked as planned for Wayne.

I don't know what to make of Villeneuve?

Ferrari’s car was quite good by 1985 too, Alboreto kept Prost himself in sight for a good whack of the year

What do we think was Villeneuves greatest drive? A lot say Jarama 1981, I personally preferred Canada 1978

IIRC, listening to Prost's Beyond the Grid podcast interview. He was saying that after he got the boot from Renault, the following day from missing out on the WC in South Africa, he was onto the phone to his contacts at Marlboro looking to get a drive at Ferrari. But Marlboro guided them to McLaren. Had Villeneuve already been at McLaren, Prost might've ended up at Ferrari.

He also said he’d never die in bed

He’d supposedly signed or was close to signing with McLaren for 1983, no doubt with the promise of the turbo Porsche engine for 1984......presumably no room for Prost in 1984 then?

No youtube orpdcast recommendation. But a hypothetical in light of the anniversary of Gilles Villeneuve's death the other day.

What if he had not died, and survived a full F1 career. Post F1, what do you think of the hypothetical of Villeneuve partnering a car with AJ at Bathurst?
