Product Description

About the Author

Nigel Roebuck (born in 1946, in Manchester, Lancashire, England) is an English journalist. Since 1971 he has reported on Formula One, and is considered one of the sport's most influential writers. Roebuck continues to write for Autosport, plus Autoweek in the USA and a retrospective column in Motorsport magazine. His flowing, laconic and self effacing style is matched only by its insightfulness, honesty and humor, and occasional, heavy-handed reference to UK party politics. In 1982 Roebuck drove a Formula One Renault turbo at Circuit Paul Ricard in France. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Too little a story. More captions to a lot of pictures. Pictures can say more than words but I would have liked a bigger part of a story. If you are looking for a story this is not your book. If you know everything about Gilles it can be nice for the extra number of pictures. Okay the subtitle is A Photographic Portrait, so maybe my expectations were to high. But I do not fancy the other titles in this series now.

A wonderful book on an amazing driver. 5 Nov. 2008
By mickaroo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book will be a great addition to any F1 fans collection. I personally am a huge Gilles fan to this day, and continue to be saddened that we never got to see more of this most unique racer. I started watching him race Alouette snowmobiles and followed him with great interest throughout his auto racing career, and believe we will never see the likes of such a talent again. He certainly was a once in a lifetime thing. I believe I have every book that has ever been published about Gilles, and rank this right up near the top of my collection. There are some pictures in this book that I have never seen before, which to me makes it worth the price all by it self. Nigel Roebuck is a great writer of F1, and does a great job on this book of bringing the history back to life. I really enjoyed it, and am sure you will too.
The most exciting driver ever 18 Oct. 2008
By Daniel Bradette - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It's already 26 years since Gilles died in action but he is still remembered depite the fact that he never was a world champion.He just didn't lived long enough to do so. Villeneuve is the living proof that numbers don't really matter when it came to the greatness of a driver. I remembered very well a visit at Maranello, the Ferrari factory near Modena in 1999. Michael Schumacher was the new god for Ferrari but as I strolled through the town,all I saw was pictures of Gilles Villeneuve and very few of Schumacher. Gilles Villeneuve is a living legend in Italy, a sort of icon with his scarlett Ferrari No 27.His famous battle with René Arnoux during the French Grand prix of 1979 in Dijon is probably the most spectacular piece of driving exitement ever !So, if you are a fan of Gilles Villeneuve, this is just the best photographic book done about his racing career that I ever saw. Rush for it ! Long live Gilles !
Simply brilliant 19 Mar. 2008
By Dean Turner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If you believe, as I do, that Gilles Villeneuve was the greatest driver of all time, then this book is a must. The photos are all of excellent quality, and there is just enough written information to keep you informed. This book, however, is aimed at those of us who know of Gilles exploits already, and of the tragedy of his untimely passing. Therefore it is all about enjoying the visual aspect of his exploits behind the wheel of racing cars, and remebering his brilliance.
For Gilles Villeneuve followers, must buy! 13 Jun. 2013
By David A. Larison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a great book about Gilles, one I had to have for my library, largely devoted to him and Racers like him. I named my first son after Gilles because of my respect for his courage and discipline. David.
