He survived the 1970's with one of the most incredible stories of survival and plain stubborness. He was incredibly intelligent, irreverent, and competent. Extremely respectful driver who also knew how to stand his ground. A legend who elevated the idea of a competent driver who also knows how to setup his car, serving as inspiration for greats such as Nelson Piquet. His passing caught me by surprise. I figured his latest visit to the hospital would be like all others, temporary. What terribly sad news.
