No, he is talking about Gilles Villeneuve. Winner of 6 Grand Prix back in the late 70's-early 80's. Premier driver for Ferrari, probably the most talented driver never to win a WDC.

He was sadly killed in a qualifying accident at the Zolder Circuit after he hit a barrier and flipped violently, being completely thrown from the car.

I think what was so shocking from his death (apart from the obvious) was the fact that he was thrown from his car to his death... something you just can't really comprehend...
