Sad news but seems he had a good innings.Can't remember now the number but was surprised how few F1races he had actually competed in over the years.Was totally different to now when F1 turns up anywhere they wave a chequebook in Bernie's direction.

I had no idea he was still alive. Definitely a good innings and clearly a decent driver.
