[Ayrton Senna], a three-time Formula One champion, was pronounced dead at 6:40 p.m. at Maggiore Hospital in Bologna, about four hours after his Williams Renault went off the track at the Tamburello turn early in the race and crashed into a retaining wall at about 180 mph.

"Yes, they may sue the International Automobile Federation {FIA} and the Formula One Constructor's Organization {FOCA} for Senna's death," family spokesman Roberto Ferreira said in Sao Paulo. "But they are still in shock and no decision has been made."

or when some guy named Enzo Ferrari was just "a noted european driver"...
