Re: Charlie Whiting F1

I have just been reading about this. He has really worked his way through the F1 ranks, was the official race starter and in charge of the rulings. He has been part of the F1 circus since about 1978. Highly influential and well respected, yes he will be missed. I wonder what they might do as a tribute this weekend? It would be nice to see something.
