Notable as the first official World Rally Champion in 1979, and only the third to die overall after McRae and Burns. Another rallying star to die - we're at that point where lots from the 70s and 80s are dying now

Then again, his death does pump the average age on death of former World Rally Champions up a notch.

Motorcyclists Stephen McIlvenna and Tim Moorhead killed in separate incidents at the Manx Grand Prix.

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.
