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.

Nasty fatal crash yesterday in a historic race at Silverstone.

No film of that but prior to it happening a driver had a bad crash at Abbey. To me it looked like a suspension failure.
Posted on YouTube so if you must...

This isn't the fatal crash. See the description. They are 1970s F1 cars, by the looks. The driver died in an older car as the picture posted suggests

Eoin Young, 75, esteemed motor racing journalist, is very poorly right now, after years of ill health, and in truth, hard living. There's every chance that he won't see 2015, or possibly not even August, but if he does make January, regrettably, I can't see him being alive for much longer.

He'll see August, but probably not September...
