Following the death of his Ferrari teammate Gilles Villeneuve, Didier Pironi was a polarising figure in Formula 1, who might have been champion but for a twist of fortune.
It is 37 years since the death of Gilles Villeneuve, the most beloved racing driver of his generation, a man without whom, for many, motor racing was never the same again.
Intrinsic to the accident at Zolder was the conduct of his Ferrari team-mate, Didier Pironi.
