Leading the tributes was former WRC competitor and current FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem, who said: “It is with great sadness that we learn of the death of Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The Queen was undoubtedly one of the most respected Heads of State that has ever lived and I send my condolences to the Royal Family and to all citizens of the UK and Commonwealth, and those of the entire FIA ​​community. Motor sport, and Formula 1 in particular, has its heart in the United Kingdom and the Royal Family have given great support and encouragement to the sport over the years. For that we thank them, and these events taking place around the world this weekend are undoubtedly in Her Majesty’s honor.”

It’s so, so sad for me to lose two very special people within two months of each other. The world will be a sadder place without us Monarch. I was honored to meet her at one of the Queen’s garden parties, along with my OBE, and these will be the most treasured memories of my life.”
