    Those who know me well know I was never a fan of him but I of course remember that day well. I think this is a good read today though for those who want a look back.

    I actually learned a bit of trivia from it that I wasn't aware of before, namely that Max the Axe was at the wheel of the safety car back then. I have always assumed that they were senior, semi-retired or retired drivers behind the wheel.

    I too was never a big fan, thought he was a self-entitled douche, but one cannot deny the skill he had, and what he did for Brazil off the track.

    Greg Moore's death hit me way, way harder, as a hero of mine, but this one, like Earnhardt's death, was much more bizarre and weird feeling, like you fell into an alternate dimension.

    Sniff Petrol had an amusing spin on the anniversary.

    On a side note, Nigel Stepney was killed in an accident today. Nigel is probably most famous now for being involved with 'Spy-gate' back in 2007 with Ferrari and McLaren.

    Yeah, the rest was good for a few chuckles, but the last line sealed it.
