    Just heard this very sad news. Goodbye Charlie, remember you in 1976 when you were within the F5000 series.
    Big loss for F1 with all your knowledge and experience, and a big headache now for Chase Carey to find a replacement.

    Very sad news. I can't see him being replaced by a single person.

    RIP Charlie

    Apparently Hamiltron, Vettel and Verstappen will take it in turns... that way they can readily complain to themselves about their decisions!

    Poor Charlie, I'd heard he'd had a bit of a turn in January but...

    Pulmonary embolism - hit our son's godfather in about 1981 when he was about 35 years old, the paramedic said even if he'd been standing at Andrew's side when it hit, he would not have been able to save him. Thankful for Charlie that, although very young and unexpected, for him it was quick and not the horrible drawn out death that both my parents had thanks to the big C.

    He will be missed. RIP Charlie, you were greatly appreciated by motor racing.

    Oh right, do no one new that he had this condition? terrible, but like you say, it wasn't drawn out.

    In Andrew's case it was completely a bolt from the blue. His work meant he had to have annual medicals, he'd driven to his parents house to collect some valuables ahead of their house move, went out to the van, a little later his mother wondered why she hadn't seen him, found him in the back of the van. Complete shock. Non smoker, light drinker, healthy lifestyle, gone in a flash.

    You don't think of this happening until you are affected directly and witnessed this.

    I did think he would make a good replacement. Technically minded enough to know and interpret the rules correctly and know when someone is trying to pull a fast one (see what I did there)

    Surprising pole and front row from MB ...
    perhaps predictably I’ve just watched Formula E on Free Sports... tough uncompromising racing , shame about the whiny noise

    Woody Allen will get his team pulling together much better than Arivabene did, so the red cars will give the Silvers a closer run this year, methinks.

    Feel for Kubica rejoining F1 with such a lemon.

    Well what a drive from VB. Lewis had some floor damage which may explain his loss of pace. Ferrari have some serious homework to do and it was disappointing that they deployed team orders in race one. Proves LeClerc will never win a race whilst Seb is there.
    Nice to see Honda finally get a podium.

    Definitely nice to see Honda bringing some power to the party.

    Was surprised by Ferrari.

    Pleased for VB - great drive!
