Marshal killed at Canadian GP

I would just like to express my condolences to the family of the 38 yr old Marshal who died at the Canadian GP.

As all of you know, without these dedicated Marshals who do this dangerous work for the love of the sport, there would be no Formula 1.

These days such accidents are few and far between and I think the last time a Marshal was killed at a GP was 2001 in Australia when the wheel of Villeneuve's BAR passed through a gap in the safety fencing.

I trust that, regardless of the accidental nature of yesterday's fatality, all of the circuits will review their vehicle recovery procedures to ensure the health and safety of everyone on the scene.

May he rest in peace.
