The brilliance of Gilles Villeneuve was often seeing shining brightest when odd driving conditions were encountered – such as having the front end of one’s race car broken in a fashion that completely obstructs forward vision! This is what happened during the very wet Canadian Grand Prix of 1981, and in true Gilles fashion he continued to race the car for as absolutely long as possible – he ended up placing third.
