Charlie Whiting, the head of Formula 1 for motorsport's governing body the FIA and one of the most influential people in the sport, has died aged 66.

Whiting suffered a pulmonary embolism on Thursday morning in Melbourne, where he was due to officiate this weekend's season-opening Australian GP.


RIP Charlie.

Very sad indeed, Charlie's legacy of safety will live on though, I can only applaud the influence he has had on formula one worldwide. R.I.P. Charlie
