    Marshal loses his life during Canadian Grand Prix meeting

    A marshal has been kill during the Canadian Grand Prix. He was helping to clear away the Sauber of Esteban Gutierrez after an accident in Turn 1. the marshal was walking alongside the car as it was being cleared away and steadying the car when he tripped and fell. The recovery driver couldn't see his colleague and ran him over. the first medical aid in the form of a Doctor was on scene within 30 seconds. the marshal was airlifted to hospital where he died from his injuries.

    This death is the 5th since 1994 and the third volunteer marshal to lose their life since 2000 at F1 meetings/ My thoughts and prayers go to the marshals friends, family and colleagues
