t : “The death of Charlie Whiting fills us with sorrow. He accomplished so much for Formula One and his passion for motorsport knew no bounds, his number one priority being safety – for drivers, marshals and spectators – in all disciplines. He made a crucial contribution to our sport. On behalf of the ACO, I present my most heartfelt condolences to Charlie’s family and friends.”
