Sid Watkins another Legend in F1

Another legend in F1.... total respect for what he has done for the sport in terms of safety and immediate medical response for the drivers. Your work is much appreciated.

Rest in Peace
Condolences to your family.


& Thank you Sid

Indeed. A good few drivers and ex-rivers around today who who wouldn't be if it wasn't for Sid.

He leaves a great legacy.

Motor Sport have put their 'Lunch With' interview with him from December 2008 on their website. I have that magazine somewhere, it seems more recent than that.

I've just seen the bit on Autosport about Sir JYS saying there needs to be a permanent tribute to Prof. Watkins.

While I can't disagree I've been more struck by Webber's comments on his monthly BBC column which mentions the Spa spills and moots whether enclosed wheels and would be better than enclosed cockpits given how rare intrusions there are there these days. Would enclosed wheels, or more enveloping Sports Car Can-Am type bodies reduce the numbers of wheels touching tread on, and bouncing around hitting cars, drivers and others after shunts?

Just a thought. Not wishing to seem disrespectful, I just think safety has taken a bit of a back step and the FIA and others seem to see some disconnect when it comes to driver standards and safety. I see this as an opportunity to make safety improvements. We have seen some dodgy stuff go unpunished in F1 this century.

Prof. Watkins is featured on Last Word on Radio 4 at 16.00:

BBC Radio 4 - Last Word, Prof Sid Watkins, Bill Moggridge, Stanley Long, George Hurst

Will be on iplayer for streaming from the web later.

I think there's a bit of a Colemanball in there from Murray.
