    Sad news from Annecy, France, that former Renault F1 team director, Ferrari enthusiast, owner and authority Jean Sage has died at the age of 68... He was one of the good guys - most of the time.

    RIP

    I was just talking with Keith Bluemel and he told me a few minutes ago...

    He was always very gracious to me and I very much appreciated that and respected his contribution to the Ferrari world.

    best regards,

    Marc

    My deepest condolences to his family and close friends.
    What a colourful, steadfast, emotional and therefore controversial character.


    Thanks for the few words we´ve exchanged. It´s been an honour.

    RIP, I remember reading about him in R&T as a kid when he ran the Renault F1 Team.

    He knew what he was talking about, always focussed to his next target, often alone in his deep thoughts. Could be very nice when he wanted to. RIP, Jean.

    By the way the picture with Jean-Pierre Hanrioud at the 1000 KM de Paris is the 275 GTB/C # 9007, not a GTB/4.

    He was the first owner of my 288 GTO. I find it to be so cool to see his name and address etc on the original documents
