Both Villenuve and Pironis infighting and petulance and his need to get back at Pironi for not letting him win the previous GP(Familiar??) , resulted in his death. Even most of the older F1 drivers will admit that. Talk about rose tinted glasses.

Risking life's during those days more than now - YES

Respect between drivers is decreased - NO! (My feeling is the drivers briefings, drivers assn meeting etc are more polite now than those days)

What he means is that unlike Massa these other pesky drivers won't move over because "Alonso is faster than you" He seems to pefer it when it is handed to him on a plate rather than having to take it...

Don't think I have read as complete a collection of totally ignorant comments ever!

These posts sadly are a great example of our human devolution.

I am afraid we are doomed!

Whilst I'm sure there are exceptions, I agree with FA. Racing is now super-aggressive, partly because drivers now know they are mostly safe behind the wheel. It calms down a bit in F1, but just watch the junior fomulas, some of those guys are nuts.

I was going to say that i'm surprised to see so many disagrees for Mix's post, but disagreeing with factual posts seems to be de rigour for some of you.

Villeneuve never spoke to Pironi again after his dubious actions at 82 San Marino GP, whether his mind set contributed to his death at Zolder is harder to say, I have read that Gilles was actually on an in lap when he hit Mass so it wasn't being timed. Can anyone remember?
