indycar etc.
first of all, r i p , prof. you did a lot for the sport.

secondly , indy, it is even more sad that saward even mentioned that there was no current f1 driver there. this was a memorial service, and there were current f1 drivers at the funeral service. they had already paid their respects. there seems to be little point in trying to stir up trouble. it was an unneccessary comment by saward.

Prof Sid is still missed and Dr Ian Roberts will carry on his work. With regards to current F1 drivers not turning up some may have been there but not noticed and Britain was suffering a amber/red snow warning at the time and in Britain when we get some snow we just grind to a halt so the last thing Prof Sid would have wanted was someone having an accident just trying to get to his memorial service.

I may be getting the wrong end of the stick, and I'm not a fan of Bernie by any means, but I'm not sure if I like the tone of his comments. 'I suggested...' 'We agreed....'! Sounds like he's trying to take his share of the credit here.

It may well be that there were many others who worked with Sid and made telling contributions or suggestions as important as what Sid did himself but this was Sid's moment and not a time to big bigging yourself up, eh Mr Ecclestone.

RIP Sid Watkins
