John Surtees: Former F1 world champion dies at 83

Only person to win the WC on 2 wheels & 4, a true legend. RIP.

Absolute travesty Surtees was never knighted, considering these days you get a gong for winning a tennis match or 2.

Really sad. I would like to hope he turned down a knighthood as opposed to never being offered it.
