    Yes, I had the same reaction when I saw it earlier. Never, but never heard a bad word said about him. Very sad indeed, and rather a tragic start to the season.

  3. They’ve already appointed a replacement. The show must go on.

    A reminder to us all - esp those of more advanced years - of the risks of long haul flight and DVT/Embolism and the need to take precautions.

    He clearly loved his work and died at the top of his game.
    Tragic that he died so far from home and never enjoyed retirement.

    The poacher turned gamekeeper... Remember him trying some truly dodgy things at Brabham...

    No one had a bad word to say about the bloke though, he really was one of those real diamonds. He'll be missed, that's for sure.

    I hate to think what his annual air miles were. Probably over 100,000, but he would have been flying 1st class and private jets. Not stuck at the back hunched in cattle class.
