    The Chequered Flag

    Been over 2 hours since it happened and no word other than he was unconscious and unresponsive according to his team mate. Rumour is that they're waiting for the family to get there from Colorado before they announce anything. If there was good news, they would have announced it by now And with Guy Ligier's passing, I think I lead the DDP theme team league now. I'd rather Justin was OK, though. Really nice guy. Been following his career since I saw him race in Formula Vauxhall at Pembrey in 1998, and then through F3000 where he was team mates with Gonzalo Rodriguez, who also died in a tragic accident...

    2015 DDP Salvage Lot

    Rob Ford was the main one. Just not convinced he's going in the next 12 months. Ditto Helen Fawkes and Percy Sledge. But I've gambled on a couple of others who also might not It's a tough year. There are a couple of dead certs but there's not much info going round on some of the likely popular picks. And obviously last year's nailed on picks (Simon, Wilko etc) surviving the year just makes it even trickier

    Who Should Be On The 2015 Deathlist?

    I'd forgotten about that one, and see he's gone from a fairly regular Tweeter to nothing in six months. Also, the "in the know" folk who tend to blab on the popular forums are keeping quiet. I had also just stumbled across him on my longlist and checked around. Usually the likes of the BBC are the first to say when one of their ill personalities is doing well, so the fact that there's been nothing from them since April and nothing from Alagiah himself since not long after suggests he might be a good shout for next year. Doesn't turn 60 until November too

    In any case, he's not in intensive care - he's in special care, which apparently is something different and not as serious His spokesman says he is "completely fine". Expect him to be dead by Monday then

    He's in a similar condition to Prince Friso, though, so there's a chance he may not go on for years

    Not showing huge improvement, by the sounds. Might be a good bet for 2015 Sir Frank is also in hospital but it seems to be fairly routine surgery: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/formula1/29855696

    He was doing very well - captained the South Africa side in the most recent Cup of Nations qualifiers too. Terrible news
