I got to know Professor Watkins and his wife Susan Watkins when he employed Greenthumb Lawn Service to treat his lawns at Lennel near Coldstream in the Scottish Borders. I also done some private work at the property in Kelso. They are the nicest people you could ever meet. Such a gentleman, kind hearted and its a shame we lost someone who has been a very important figure in the role he played in Formula One. My thoughts go out to you Susan and your family. May you rest in peace.

RIP you were a Guardian Angel and a shoulder to cry on for many a racing driver. Without you medical facilities at race tracks would be decades behind.

So many owe so much to Professor Watkins. A truly great man who sat like a colossuss across his professional sphere and formula 1. A true gentleman whom many owe much. From those that knew you and those that know of you, we all will miss you immensely.

Wow, look at those comments! Heart warming. Since I saw my first F1 race Sid Watkins was there. And people always spoke in the highest regards of him. That's very special. He had a very special relationship with Senna too. Not the most approachable of the drivers.
RIP doctor Sid. Heaven just got themselves a great addition to the medical team.
