The second of those was a university law lecturer and his death made local headlines in Kent.

First time I've seen him look as old as he is. Wonder if the court case has finally taken it out of him. Wouldn't be surprised if the bluff here is saying he's going to carry on - preparing the way for an announcement to be made in the next few weeks saying he's stepping down or something

Just spotted on interview on BBC News with Bernie Ecclesfone. He looked dreadful, but knowing that deceptive pillock it could have been an act.

Video here

He's really beginning to look and sound a bit demented, maybe it was a lack of sleep or something... but IMO he's been sounding even more of an old weirdo than he ever did in recent months/weeks.

Yeah, Telegraph might. Possibly Eurosport too

He had a serious snowmobile accident in 2008 too, as well as another one last year

For the more permissive/we want 'em dead considerations of Deathrace scoring he'd be a shoo in on the back of the guaranteed online reports from Canadian press sources.

Jacques Villeneuve Sr., uncle of Jacques and brother of Gilles is suffering from cancer of the intestine. Report in French - http://www.journalde...e-par-le-cancer

I think the family link would probably eke a UK obit.
