Vale John Surtees

John Surtees died on 10th March at the age of 83. He was one of motor sport's greats. The only ever F1 and 500cc motorcycle world champion. He was a great engineer and a brilliant driver and rider. I was very fortunate to have seen him race in Ferraris, Hondas and Lolas. Photo above taken at, I think, Silverstone showing him looking on whilst the Honda engineers work on his car. All so different to today's F1 paddock scenes. A giant from another age.
