Charlie Whiting the chief Steward of F1 passed away today in Australia just before the opening of the 2019 season.

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.

The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt. Bertrand Russell, 1872 - 1970.
Being intelligent is not a felony. But most societies evaluate it as at least a misdemeanour. Robert A. Heinlein, 1907 - 1988.
