FORMULA ONE: Professor Sid Watkins, who was credited with overhauling F1’s safety protocol during more than 30 years in the sport, has died, aged 84. The Whitechapel Hospital neurosurgeon, as trackside doctor, played a key role in saving the lives of Rubens Barrichello and Mika Hakkinen after crashes in the mid-1990s. “It was Sid Watkins that saved my life in Imola 94," Barrichello wrote on Twitter. "Great guy to be with, always happy. Thanks for everything you have done for us drivers. RIP."
