Charlie Whiting dies from a Pulmonary Embolism just 3 days before the season opening Australian Grand Prix. Charlie has been involved in F1 since 1977 and was the race director since 1997. Well respected by the drivers and fans alike.
He had been quoted in interviews saying that touring and playing were keeping him alive. It wasn't just emotional and "reason to live", he had many health issues that insurance wouldn't cover and he needed the income to buy his medications.
