Remembering Charlie Whiting: Sky F1 pays tribute to Formula 1's influential and highly-respected race director, speaking to those who knew him best.
Whiting's passing on the eve of the Australian GP cast a shadow over the season-opener, with tributes flooding in from up and down the paddock and pit-lane all weekend.
"He was the centre of gravity of an F1 race and season, and won't be replaced by just one person," says Sky F1's Martin Brundle in our special feature, which aired on Sunday morning.
So pleased that 2.1 million people saw this tribute to Charlie on SkyF1 channels through race day along with millions more on SkyF1 online and millions around the world who see our show. Had a tear in my eye in the edit room, credit to our creative and talented team as always https://t.co/6FgvjhUQEd— Martin Brundle (@MBrundleF1) March 19, 2019
The tribute includes emotional interviews with Bernie Ecclestone and Herbie Blash, who worked closely with Charlie for many years, as well as F1 chief Ross Brawn.
He won't be forgotten.
