Vale Charlie Whiting

https://www.speedcafe.com/2019/03/14...-whiting-dies/

Formula 1 Race Director Charlie Whiting has died at the age of 66 just days ahead of the 2019 season opener.

Whiting passed away in Melbourne, his death the result of a pulmonary embolism.

“It is with immense sadness that I learned of Charlie’s sudden passing,” said FIA President Jean Todt.

“I have known Charlie Whiting for many years and he has been a great Race Director, a central and inimitable figure in Formula One who embodied the ethics and spirit of this fantastic sport.

“Formula 1 has lost a faithful friend and a charismatic ambassador in Charlie.

“All my thoughts, those of the FIA and entire motor sport community go out to his family, friends, and all Formula One lovers.”

Whiting began his career in F1 with Hesketh during the 1970s before joining the then-Bernie Ecclestone owned Brabham team.

He joined the FIA in the late 1980s before being appointed race director in 1997.

“I have known Charlie for all of my racing life. We worked as mechanics together, became friends and spent so much time together at race tracks across the world,” said Formula 1’s Managing Director of Motorsport, Ross Brawn.

“I was filled with immense sadness when I heard the tragic news. I’m devastated.

“It is a great loss not only for me personally but also the entire Formula 1 family, the FIA and motorsport as a whole. All our thoughts go out to his family.”

Brawn was just one of those sharing messages of condolence following Whiting’s death, with the F1 paddock and others across the motorsport community taking to social media to express their loss.

Not seeing Charlie Whiting in the start box will be like not hearing Murray Walker on the commentary. I am deeply saddened by the news. Prayers are with his family.

So shocked to hear about Charlie today.

A lovely person - someone who became your friend from the time that you first met him - genuine and very talented, he'll be missed at many levels.

Vale Charles - you'll be missed by the thousands whose lives have been enriched by knowing you.

The long flight was my first thought as well.

Shocking news regardless of how it came about.

Very nice tribute from the “Fake Charlie Whiting” twitter account. Apparently Charlie was a fan...

https://twitter.com/charlie_whiting/...163851264?s=21

With Charlie’s passing, the account will not long post new content.
