The last week in motorsport has been dominated by the tragic news of Jules Bianchi succumbing to the horrific head injuries he suffered at Suzuka last year.
I was fortunate to have lunch at Jackie Stewart's house a few months ago along with Damon Hill and John Watson. Jackie was kind enough to show us around his house, and just looking at the pictures of his friends and other drivers who had been killed or seriously injured reminded us of how much the sport has moved on.
Damon and I spoke to Jackie about Jules and his perspective on things was perhaps more pragmatic considering in his era they pretty much expected more than one driver to get killed every season. That conversation really was a reminder of how lucky we are and how we should be thankful to people like Jackie who did a huge amount for the safety of drivers and mechanics.
