The only man ever to have won the Grand Prix World Championships on 2 and 4 wheels. That's Formula One and Moto GP nowadays. Very unlikely that anybody will ever achieve the same feat.

On top of that, one of the most interesting, intelligent, fun and kind people you will ever meet. I had the privilege of meeting him once, he was a true gentleman.

RIP John, you will be sorely missed but never forgotten.

He was a good man. Ask anyone involved in racing, utter respect for him. The sad loss of his son. Now this.

RIP John.

Sad to hear this.

Never met the man but he always presented himself as a true gentleman.
