He also said he’d never die in bed

RIP LJ - loved and never forgotten.

"It was dry for the second go-around. Grice, nervous, worrying about his Bathurst jinx, ran 2:25.9. The amazing Brock, using every last centimetre of bitumen, yet keeping the car straight and balanced and at full noise, came back with a staggering 2:20.0 as if to say: "Match that".

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.

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

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

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

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.

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