    Default John Surtees -RIP

    Sadly passed away on Friday 😢
    So sad that he was never knighted.

    Legend is right. Still the only guy to have been world champion on bikes and in F1 cars I believe.

    Bloke who services my car worked on a couple of John's F1 cars.

    It's often said the word legend is overused - however justified in this case
