Former Australian Prime Minister Bob Hawke has passed away aged 89.

A giant of Australian politics, winning four elections, he made an impression on the international scene few Australian politicians had previously.

RIP Robert James Lee Hawke, AC, GCL (9 December 1929 - 16 May 2019).

  

RIP. One of our most famous and popular politicians.

What terrible news just 2 days out from the election. 

RIP Bob. One of the last true politicians that got stuff done, what a legend.

 

Hawke actually said in December last year that his health was so bad he likely wouldn't make it to the next election, and sure enough, he held true to his word.

Paul Keating is my favourite Australian politician. His personality reminds me of John. Colourful language, aggression, clever wit, etc. Not as publicly popular as Hawke was, but a really clever man who knows his stuff. I’m glad he met Hawke one last time recently and managed to put their differences aside. They were a great team.

Very sad to hear of the death, at the age of 70, of motor racing legend, and three-time Formula 1 champion, Niki Lauda.

He was truly one of the sporting giants. Winning his first title for Ferrari in 1975, the following year he was involved in an horrific crash that saw him receiving very bad burns when the car burst into flames, nearly killing him and leaving him badly scarred for life. He was back racing just six weeks later, and got his second title with Ferrari in 1977. His third title came with McClaren in 1984, making him the only driver to win titles with the two leading Formula 1 teams.

RIP Andreas Nikolaus Lauda (22 February 1949 – 20 May 2019).

Rest in Peace! john-lennon-salute_gif He was a master of going faster...

From the sleeve of George Harrison (1979 eponymous album):

"Faster" is inspired by Jackie Stewart and Nicki Lauda.
Dedicated to the Entire Formula One Circus.

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote
