John Surtees: Former F1 world champion dies at 83

He is a true motor-racing legend, the only person to have won grand prix world championships on both two wheels and four. RIP

To do what he did is the stuff of legends, as no-one will ever come close. Valentino Rossi, one of the absolute indisputable greats of motorsport couldn't/wouldn't break into F1 even with the backing and support of Ferrari, let alone win a F1 title - it says a lot about what a maestro Surtees was, especially considering some of the dogs he drove (and he won a race driving one of those dogs!).

Such a distinguished career yet due to the tragic death of Henry he'll also be remembered for his subsequent fundraising, awareness and safety campaigns - he's a hero of in so many different ways.

RIP John. Your legendary status has long been secured. Your posthumous knighthood will follow.
