    Last Friday marked the 25th anniversary of the untimely passing of the great James Hunt. Growing up, I only knew of him as a wonderfully outspoken commentator. In the years since, helped by the superb film "Rush", I have grown to learn more about his legacy as an extremely talented F1 driver and needless to say some of his colourful antics during the 1970s.

    It remains such a tragedy that just as he was at his most settled and contented, he died at the far too early age of 45. I remember that day as clearly as if it was just yesterday.
