Michele Alboreto tribute

It is with great sadness that we learn of the death of Michele Alboreto. The 44-year old veteran of 194 Formula One races succumbed to injuries received when the Audi R8 he was testing left the road at the Lausitzring in Germany and rolled on Wednesday, April 25.

"Michele was racing with us in the Lamborghini GTR Supertrophy the previous weekend," said Manfred Fitzgerald, Marketing Manager Lamborghini. "This tragedy has come as a personal shock to me, he was a good friend. We will all miss his warm, friendly and open personality, which we were able to share in the Monza paddock only a few days before his death. He possessed a character and wit that would instantly put a smile on your face. Our sympathies and thoughts go out to Michele's wife Nadia, to his two daughters, and to his family and friends. Motor racing has lost a true gentleman."
