Former Renault F1 director of aerodynamics Dino Toso died today. Dino was one of the few Dutchmen to reach the very top of motor racing, having started at national club racing level, and played an instrumental role in Renault's world title winning years. Sadly, he lost the batlle against the cancer that he fought so bravely for years. Above all, he will not only be remembered for his great talent, but first and foremost as a very kind and modest man.

For me it was absolutly clear that the cancer came back to Toso as Renault said that Toso will be retire. It was in June this year I think. Very sad to hear from his death. He was only 39 years old!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very sad! RIP Toso
