Yes, an amazing man. Sounds like his accident finally got him. 2 kidney transplants and a resent lung transplant which Im sure were needed as a result of injuries suffered all those years ago.

Around at a time when F1 was seriously dangerous.

Incredible driver and businessman - he founded three airlines. Coming back after that horrific crash in 1976 was one of the bravest feats ever in sport.

It's hard to imagine how he survived that horrendous crash and to live for a further 43 years before passing, is an incredible achievement.
Only he would have known the painful period in life he endured especially in those early years.

I still remember getting his autograph as a kid, but not really understanding his facial injury and seeing my dad looking embarrassed about me looking at it.
