I have just read Jackie Stewart's autobiography, (a very good read should you find a copy) and he dedicated a lot of space and praise upon the Prof.

RIP

Along with Jackie Stewart, the guy did more to save the lives of so so many F1 drivers than any single other person in the history of the sport

A true legend. There will be a sombre mood at Singapore for sure

RIP Prof

If you can track down a copy of his autobiography it's a very good read.

One of the good guys for sure.

I'd second that, his first book is an incredible insight into how F1 changed throughout the eighties.

RIP.
