The Betrayal

The betrayal sketch

This time i am showing you a little sketch for  a future full size drawing.

1982  San Marino GP saw a reduced field of cars which entered the race to just 14 , because of the FISA-FOCA war which led the FOCA teams to boycott the race.  Race started with two Renault drivers leading the way followed closely by Gilles Villeneuve and Didier Pironi. Alain Prost retired from fourth position on the lap 7,  followed by his teammate Arnoux on the 44th lap and Ferrari seemed to have the win guaranteed. In order to conserve fuel and ensure the cars finished the Ferrari team ordered both drivers to slow down. Villeneuve believed that the order also meant that the drivers were to maintain position, but Pironi passed Villeneuve.

A few laps later Villeneuve re-passed Pironi and slowed down again, believing that Pironi was simply trying to entertain the Italian crowd. On the last lap Pironi passed and aggressively chopped across the front of Gilles in Villeneuve corner and took the win. Villeneuve was irate as he believed that Pironi had disobeyed the order to hold position. Meanwhile Pironi claimed that he had done nothing wrong as the team had only ordered the cars to slow down, not maintain position. Villeneuve stated after the race “I think it is well known that if I want someone to stay behind me and I am faster, then he stays behind me.” Feeling betrayed and angry Villeneuve vowed never to speak to Pironi again. Sadly this was indeed the case, since Villeneuve tragically lost his life during the qualifying for the following race in Zolder, Belgium.
