Canadian GP – A Sunday that became sad

Maranello, 10 June – Monza in 2000, Melbourne in 2001 and now Montreal. In the final phase of yesterday’s Canadian Grand Prix a marshal suffered fatal injuries after being run over by a crane that was removing Gutierrez’s Sauber. “There can be no reason to celebrate,” tweeted a sad Alonso when he heard the news and he is absolutely right. The winners and losers from this seventh round of the championship, along with the workers and the fans who watched the race from the grandstands or on television are all thinking of someone who lost their life in an absurd way while involved in what was surely their passion, racing. Indeed, without the work of people like him, events like Formula 1 grands prix could not even take place.
Ferrari wishes to express its condolences for the death of this track marshal too: we are doing it here, via the internet, to invite everyone who shares our passion for motor sport to be thinking of the family and friends of the victim.
