While we were all getting excited about the new F1 season we were shocked to hear of the sudden passing of a stalwart of F1
Charly Whiting died suddenly early today in Melbourne...….will be a sad race weekend...Charly has been involved with F1 longer than I can remember...RIP Charly.

Last of the old guard in F1 and a sad loss too.

He always seamed unflappable and was never swayed by any drivers tantrums. He will be missed.

Yes, very sad, especially as he seemed a very nice man, who was good at his job. My only criticism was of late, he was a little too keen to use safety cars of VSLs. I would have loved to have followed him around for a race. He was not old either, only 66.
