The world of Formula One has paid tribute to former medical delegate Sid Watkins who died on Wednesday night at the age of 84.

Throughout his career in F1, Watkins’ actions helped save the lives of Northern Ireland’s Martin Donnelly, Finland’s double world champion Mika Hakkinen and Austrian Gerhard Berger, among others.

“Everyone at the team is very sad to hear of the passing of Professor Sid Watkins. Thanks to his commitment and passion, Formula One became a far safer sport during the thirty-three years of his involvement.”Brawn said.

It was a pleasure and an honour to have known and worked with him, and we extend our thanks and gratitude for all of his hard work to make the sport we love as safe as possible. That Sid was able to undertake such a challenging task with huge professionalism, humour and a positive demeanour helped all of us deal with the demands of motor racing. Our condolences and thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.”
