A tribute to Carlos Reutemann:
Carlos was one of my favourite drivers from the Brabham era. ‘Lole’ was a very gentle person, passionate about his racing and a true family member of the Brabham team and he and I developed a very special relationship during the 4 years he raced for us. On the right day he was unbeatable – particularly on fast circuits.
Carlos loved the BT44 and it remains a great and poignant memory for me that his first win was at the South African Grand Prix at Kyalami in 1974 which was my first grand prix win.
The sport has lost a great driver and a true gentleman.
