First became aware of one of Formula 1's most respected and authoritative journalists faltering health from whom I've taken to calling Grizzled Journo' Joe Saward upon his F1 Blog.
Yet I awoke to the news via The Guardian Saturday morning noting the loss of longtime F1 Journo' Extraordinaire Alan Henry having taken the chequered flag at the age of 68.
Whilst Messer Saward notes how his career is intertwined with Henry's, for whom seemingly countless persons are in the business of motorsports near and abroad.
And I'm certain I've got a copy of his Alain Prost autobiography sitting upon thy bookshelves, and pretty certain there's also a copy of his March: The Grand Prix and Indy Cars volume holding station there too, as the man fondly known by friends simply as "AH" was a prolific writer with some 50 books to his credit; Aye Karumba!
