The Formula 1 paddock was shocked on Thursday by the news that race director Charlie Whiting died overnight following a pulmonary embolism in Melbourne. Edd Straw is joined by Scott Mitchell and Giorgio Piola to discuss Whiting's significant impact on F1, and why he was such a popular and respected figure after spending decades in the paddock and the pitlane. They also explain how wide-ranging his role was in making F1 tick, and why it will probably require as many as three people to replace him
