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.
