Ex-Renault man Toso dead

Aero star succumbs to cancer



Dino Toso, former Director of Aerodynamics at the Renault F1 team, has died this morning having lost the battle with cancer. He was 39 years old.

A statement from the team reads:

“It is with great sadness that the ING Renault F1 Team confirms that former Director of Aerodynamics, Dino Toso, lost his battle with illness this morning and passed away peacefully at his home."

"Dino was instrumental in building one of the sport’s most successful aerodynamics departments, which helped the Renault F1 team win double drivers’ and constructors’ titles in 2005 and 2006."

"His contribution to the team, both through his results and his courage in the face of illness, are an inspiration. He will be missed enormously and the immediate thoughts of the whole team are with his family."






------------------
I was feeling very sad when I read that. To die at 39 because of cancer is very very cruel and second he was a brilliant engineer in my oppinion, did some great work at Renault and Jordan.

Also the second case of death for Renault in a couple of weeks. Bad times for them too.

There are so little Dutchies in F1, so it really is a shame to lose such a great Director. He really was the man of the Aerodynamics for Renault in 2005-2006, No one in Holland knows that, that really is a shame, he is not mentioned on the news..

My Thoughts go out to his family and friends..
