When I think of F1, Charlie Whiting really comes into my mind! A great and fair person. A big loss for the F1-community and needless to say, for his family and friends as well.

R.I.P.

I'm just shocked. Good bye and thanks Charlie!

In my view he had too many responsibilities & too much on his plate.
Perhaps he wanted it, but imho I think he should have delegated more.

Massive shock. Another one from those early years gone but he had huge respect from the drivers and did what he loved.

Not a bad life lived. RIP.

F1 et al will certainly feel ...."something's missing" as race weekends flow through from Thursday to Sunday evening.

I'm truly saddened.

Should give him the fastest lap point from this weekend so he will live on in F1 records forever. Would be a nice gesture

Very true. I think this came about since he was there from the early days of Bernie. Nothing necessitates a handover more than someone dying though.

I think a proper final to this thread. A warp back in time...
