Vale John Surtees

John Surtees, the widely admired motor sport hero and only person to win grand prix world titles riding motorcycles and driving Formula One cars, has died at 83. He won six F1 grands prix, but probably should have won more.

A stubborn, unbending gent, Surtees walked out on opportunities at Lotus and Ferrari that may have brought him more wins and perhaps more championships. Surtees died on March 10, 2017 following a short illness.
