FAENZA, ITALY, May 22, 2001 -- Last night 61-year-old Gabriele Rumi died after a brave fight against cancer.

It will be extremely hard to forget the passion and the determination which have characterized his 20 years-presence in Formula One.

To the Minardi Team and to the motor racing he has certainly made a considerable contribution as a manager and as a man.

The Team's thoughts are with Gabriele's family in this moment of sorrow.

A memorial service will be held, at the Church of Santa Maria Assunta, Piazza Roma, Palazzolo sull'Oglio, Wednesday 23 May, starting at 05,45 PM from his home Via Pacinotti no. 10, Palazzolo sull'Oglio (BS).

Rumi's family doesn't request flowers. It is possible to make a donation to "Associazione Ok ci sono anch'io" of Palosco which is taking care of handicapped children.
