Spanish news agency EFE reports that physiotherapist Raniero Gianotti, 46, had a fatal heart attack whilst cycling.

"I've lost a brother," said Jaime Alguersuari, a driver with the Italian based team between 2009 and 2011.

Italian reports said Gianotti began working in F1 in the nineties, when Faenza based Toro Rosso was Minardi.

The reports also said he worked during his career with Ferrari, Stewart and Toyota and with drivers including Rubens Barrichello, Felipe Massa and world champion Sebastian Vettel. His funeral will be in Urbino, Italy.
