20 April 2004 –
It's too easy to forget that an Austrian rookie, by the name of Roland Ratzenberger, also lost his life at the San Marino Grand Prix weekend of 1994. F1 photographer Keith Sutton is keen to remind the racing world.
The veteran has had 100 pins bearing the late 33-year-old's helmet re-printed and he'll present them to a number of 'friends' in Imola, according to ITV.
Sutton remembers bumping into the Simtek driver at an airport in 1994. 'Roland gave the check-in staff a badge of his helmet - he used to hand them out to friends. So this will be my way of ensuring that his life is celebrated.'
