The 60's really were a golden age for F1.

R.I.P., Robin. Very well done.

Indeed.  That was a very apt tribute to a very talented man.

I seem to have this recollection that the last chassis he penned was the Fomet1 chassis used by Fondmetal in 1991 and that he also did some design work for Larrousse at some point, but I'd have to look it up.
