'Charlie Whiting will be impossible to replace in F1'

Опубликовано: 14 мар. 2019 г. 58 122 просмотра

The Formula 1 paddock was shocked on Thursday by the news that race director Charlie Whiting died overnight following a pulmonary embolism in Melbourne. Edd Straw is joined by Scott Mitchell and Giorgio Piola to discuss Whiting's significant impact on F1, and why he was such a popular and respected figure after spending decades in the paddock and the pitlane. They also explain how wide-ranging his role was in making F1 tick, and why it will probably require as many as three people to replace him

    Ole Kaarvaag Неделю назад I only started to properly follow the sport last year and was/am not aware of how big, important and universally loved he is. Judging by the reactions in the subreddits, the twitter feeds and videos it's clear as day that Formula 1 has lost a fantastic man. Thanks for uploading this. I didn't know just how much he did for the sport and I don't think I ever will, no matter how much I read up on him. I at least have a slightly better understanding of the man we have sadly lost now.

If you watch old races, you'll probably hear a driver complain on the radio about other driver's moves by saying: "That's not right, Charly". Or the broadcaster saying something like "let see what Charly has to say about that". The guy was omnipresent.

    Vuhdu Неделю назад @Nikhil Naik If you actually listen to what is been said in the video instead of reading comments and attempting to correct people with false information youd know the scale of his Responsibilities.

    Davis L. Gathaara Неделю назад Charlie was a gentleman's gentleman. Respected and fair. F1 just cant be the same with out him anymore....F1 changing by the day now. Everything negative happening to this sport. Replacing him will be so difficult and his role maybe divided between 2 or more people, such was Charlie's impact on the sport!!
