That's sad. I only met him once, at a car manufacturers meeting at the SMMT. Great way to build cars - marine plywood bulkheads and GRP curvy outer panels.
In a similar vein about meeting people once, I'm thinking Paddy Hopkirk will really be getting on by now. On checking I find he is 81. And I was astounded to see him still pushing his brand in a business meeting back in 2004. Made of sturn stuff these old motor sports guys.

A colleague of mine said he received an e-mail from Paddy Hopkirk last week.

Alonso's bang on the head has ruled him out of the first Grand Prix this year.

 

Likely to live, mind.

Yeah but is F1?

Every time I see someone has posted something new here I think "now THIS is the Jules Bianchi death finally being announced" only to be disappointed again and again. I almost backed off his name due to concerns his family might keep France's National Vegetable alive for no reason. Shoulda followed those instincts.

I just saw a documentary (on Dutch telly) about Dutch F1 driver Jan Lammers.

Doesn't look bad for a 58 y/o.

That documentary is in Dutch of course, but should you want to see it: it's online. I don't know how long it'll stay.

Thanks for that Pedro - there goes my joker.  Makes up nicely for a blank scorecard last year...
