A memorial has been unveiled to a Grand Prix driver whose tragic death led to safety reforms.
The statue is at Donington Park
Roger Williamson, from Leicestershire, was killed during the Dutch Grand Prix exactly 30 years ago.
Despite surviving the crash, he died in a subsequent fire because marshals were ill equipped to deal with the flames.
His sister Barbara Upton attended the statue unveiling at Donington Park.
She said: "I am very proud... and it's wonderful to see so many familiar faces from Roger's racing career."
William's friend, journalist Ian Phillips, said: "He was destined to go right to the very top and be a world champion... he just had the mental make-up of a champion."
Williamson died at his second F1 race
Safety procedures in Formula One were changed immediately after images of Williamson's death were broadcast around Europe.
Mr Phillips said: "It should have been avoided.
"He wasn't hurt in the accident, he was alive with no injuries and there were people around who could have helped him but they weren't equipped."
