    Chris was my first F1 hero. Age 13 on a crisp sunny Saturday March morning, standing at Druids. Race of Champions practice was about to start, my first race track attendance. The thrill of the 3 Ferraris leading the field out of the pits is a vivid memory; Ickx, De Adamich and Amon. The helmet, the style and that bloody beautiful red car with the bunch of white snakes for an exhaust system. Hooked forever. Thank you for it all CA - RIP

    Thanks for posting that article. Great driver with splendid character.

    Good grief. I didn't realize that it was already 50 years since he won Le Mans.

    RIP
