Sad news indeed, Patrick had quite a wide range of F1 rides,most folks will remember Ferrari and Renault mainly.

There are not too many grand prix winners who you could also say were real gentlemen. Partick was one of the few. Imola 1983 will always be in my heart.

A man I looked up to when I was a kid.
A man I respected and admired for so many reasons for so many years.
A man who sometimes seemed bemused by the continued fondness the racing public
had for him so many years after he stopped being an active racing driver.
Like the 'Captain' said. A real Gentleman.

One of my very few heroes is gone.

Rest in peace Patrick.

He didn't just race in Formula One. He won the Can-Am Championship twice: 1977 &1980.

RIP Patrick.
