Memory and masterpieces

I wanted to use this rather unusual title as I think they are two most salient things to chat about today. I would say that the first does not need an introduction and it is, of course, Michael Schumacher's win at the GP of Europe. The second needs a little more detail... Firstly, I have to give you all a ticking off as none of you remembered that the 8 May is the anniversary of Gilles Villeneuve's passing. The Ferrari star lost his life tragically at Zolder 24 years ago. It is a homage to perhaps the most loved driver in the history of Ferrari and it seems apt to bring this up especially by someone who goes by the title 'Red 27'; what do you think? If you would like to refresh your memories before replying, take a look at the monographs of the drivers who have made Prancing Horse history on the site. At this pourpose, just a little question, only for the real "tifosi": did you remember the GP in which this picture was made?Gilles Forever!!!

    Gianpaulo, Before you give us all a ticking off, may I suggest that you look at the forum. I posted a tribute to Gilles just before midnight UTC last Sunday. (I did consider seeking permission to become a blog editor but worried that I could not find words).

    I suppose the picture was taken at Monaco 1981, Gilles¿ legendary win at the wheel of the Ferrari 126C, the first win for a Ferrari Turbo. Gilles forever! The most beloved driver.

    Monaco for sure! At Hockenheim in the Historic Races there was a car of Gilles and we yelled and shouted for the driver as if Gilles was racing - and he was really good, overtaking some others! The monument of Gilles in Maranello looks a bit shattered, the letters of his name are no longer there - although there are always flowers. Maybe Ferrari should take care for that special monument...? And I love also the picture of Enzo and Gilles in a relaxed mood talking to each other!
