    Charlie Whiting has passed away. RIP

    Sad news from the Australian Grand Prix with the sudden passing of FIA Director of Formula 1 Charlie Whiting in Melbourne this morning. Whiting worked for Brabham at the start of the Adelaide Grand Prix before joining the FIA in 1988:

    Charlie Whiting died last night of a pulmonary embolism. He was 66 years old.

    It's not how start but how you finish.

    Unbelievable life is so precious you just do not know what is around the corner RIP CHARLIE the gloss has certainly come of the opening race in Melbourne but I guess CHARLIE certainly would want the show to go on flat strap.

    Just got to work and noticed that Charlie is gone :O And to think, that my dad and granpa had the same condition and survived, makes me realize once again, how fragile life is. RIP.

    R.I.P. Charlie. We will miss you.
    It was a huge shock when I read it. On the eve of the first race.
    Thoughts and prayers are with his family.

    What tragic news. Just yesterday he was talking to the drivers and was perfectly healthy and today he is gone. Just shows you how sudden death can be. I can't imagine how his family must be feeling especially with it happening when he is all the way out in Australia.

    Very sorry to read the sad news as Formula One owes Charlie Whiting so much! I hope F1 and fans' gratitude is of some
    consolation to his family in what must be a very difficult time for them. RIP Charlie Whiting, you will be missed!

    Shocking when it is preventable. My dad when flying had to wear constrictive leg bands to stop such occurance. Pity he never had a check up that highlighted it as a risk.
