'Charlie Whiting will be impossible to replace in F1'

Опубликовано: 14 мар. 2019 г. 59 343 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 2 месяца 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.
