Watkins to be honoured in Singapore

F1 to remember Sid Watkins in Singapore
The FIA has announced that it will honour the memory of Professor Sid Watkins prior to the start of this weekend's Singapore Grand Prix.

The governing body has confirmed that a minute's applause will be held on the grid before the race gets underway in tribute to the former F1 medic, who died last week at the age of 84.

A book of remembrance will be available throughout the weekend for members of the F1 community to leave their own tributes, which will then be presented to the Watkins family on behalf of the FIA, FIA Institute and F1 family as a whole.

A bronze bust of Professor Watkins, commissioned for him on the occasion of his retirement last year from the FIA Institute Presidency, will be on display beside the book of remembrance throughout the race weekend.

An announcement on a permanent and lasting tribute will be made in due course.

His greatest tribute is the reduction in the risk of death or serious injury in F1 and motorsport worldwide. A great man and will be sadly missed by all of us.
