Alex,

They should erect a monument to Gilles. Enzo Ferrari said he was like the son he never had. He absolutely grabbed the car by the scruff of the neck and wrung it for all it had. Ayrton Senna reminded me of that quality.

If you ever have a chance to see archival footage of Gilles races you’ll see something we’ll probably never see again since no one drove like he did. And he had honour. He could have (and should have) won the driver’s championship in 79 but adhered to team orders set up earlier in the year and let his teammate take the title. Check out Monaco races and Eau Rouge in Belgium… :bow

That’s how I am going to drive at IMI at month’s end! Rich, Charles, Lee are you ready??? No pom poms for me, I’ve got a DNF to rectify!
