My post about champions is more poignant than ever in the cold light this morning. I had half thought of holding on hoping to be able to report another British Champion - name Dario Franchitti as Indycar champ for the fourth time. Whilst he is champion the manner of the last race leaves all that in the shade. The terrible loss of Dan Wheldon another great British driver who had conquered America was just so so sad.
Motorsport is dangerous. I watched the movie Senna over the weekend and was in tears around the final few mins when they covered that awful weekend in 1994 when he and Roland Ratzenberger lost their lives - motorsport is much safer now than then but it is still dangerous.
Dan Wheldon was a great driver, sadly not with a regular drive this year which for a past champion was mad frankly. He turned out once this year at the Indy 500 and won! Shows the quality of the man without doubt.
A sad loss and over shadows motorsport...
