Charlie Whiting: 1952-2019

Was very Shocked to hear the News late Wednesday evening Stateside via Reuters,  that Formula One's Race Director Charlie Whiting had unexpectedly Died, Age 66 from a Pulmonary Embolism.

As Sadly, when I think of Charlie's name these Days, I immediately think of 'lil Sid Viddle's Nasty, and totally Unwarranted FU Message, when Sebastian Vettel wasn't getting his way during the 2016 Mexican Grand Prix!

Yet per Tipicali', giving us the broader  brush strokes. F1 Grizzled Journo' Joe Saward notes how Whiting's Death casts a pall upon Formula One's Season Kickoff in Melbourne, and how Charlie was a "Lifer" in F1.

Whilst you can check out just a small sampling of the Heartfelt Condolences in the following Daily Mail article. But as one of "Bernie's Boys," naturally Charlie would presumably echo Ecclestone's mantra: "The Show Must G-O On!"
