Tributes have this week been pouring in following the death of former race doctor and F1 engineer Sid Watkins.

Watkins, who died of a heart attack on Wednesday at the age of 84, is credited with 'transforming' safety standards of the sport and saving lives - both through his initial entry into the sport as a doctor, and later as chairman of the FIA's Safety Committee.
