1979 Ferrari - Gilles Villeneuve - Bell helmet.
Gilles Villeneuve, was a Canadian racing driver, who spent six years in formula one racing with Ferrari, winning six races and getting widespread acclaim for his performances.
Villeneuve started his Formula 1 at McLaren in 1977 before he was taken on by reigning world champions Ferrari for the end of the season and drove for the Italian team from 1978 until his death in 1982. He won six Grand Prix races in a short career at the highest level. In 1979, he finished second by four points in the championship to teammate Jody Scheckter.
Villeneuve died in a crash caused by a collision with the March car driven by Jochen Mass during qualifying for the 1982 Belgian Grand Prix at Zolder. Villeneuve was extremely popular with fans and has since become an iconic figure in the history of the sport. His son, Jacques Villeneuve, became Formula One world champion in 1997 and, to date, the only Canadian to win the Formula One World Championship.
