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

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...

Bernie Ecclestone still has Elio deAngelis' wrecked Brabham BT55 locked away in a large plywood crate in a corner of his car collection garage. Never been seen or touched for the last 28 years.

David Purley's smashed LEC chassis from his 28G impact with the Silverstone track side banking can be seen...

Good grief guys - Paul Ricard test 1986 - low line BT55 - Elio only died in one crash.

The Rindt's crashed 72 shown in the last post on page 1 of this site...

Still has it's engine attached.
