SAD DAY, as the joke goes ;-(
Yes. Or at least, I'm guessing you are thinking of
the passing of a person who lived a very rich and
'A remarkable life lived in technicolour'
He is now released from a period of ill health.
I started watching F1 in the "occasional death" era. A death at a
long-past-racing age is a reminder of how from a humanitarian
view-point, the sport has improved almost immeasurably, and therefore
has a small silver lining.
Of course, in Niki's case, his latter ill-health was directly connected
to his racing, so it's not a perfect analogy, but he managed 2 WDCs after
damaging his lungs, so it may be a direct connection, but not a strong one.
One of the greats, who gave so much to the sport.
