While Senna's fatal accident of May 1 1994 is to be widely remembered, I think it entirely appropriate to remember that it was on the previous day that Roland Ratzenburger passed away at the same F1 race meet in Imola. Roland was new to the F1 fraternity but fully earned his place on the F1 grid. His fatal accident in practice was due to a front wing failure and on that day in April, F1 lost a truly first class person. While Roland was never destined to superstardom, he was an excellent driver (certainly of F1 caliber) who fought hard for all that he achieved. Roland you are indeed missed.
