Walter Totschnig

Walter Totschnig, the logistics manager of Toro Rosso, has died at the age of 67. Totschnig was one of the great characters of Formula 1 and spent 13 years working with Sauber before switching over to Scuderia Toro Rosso. Totschnig was a friend of Red Bull boss Dietrich Mateschitz and was supported by him in his amateur rallying exploits. After Red Bull decided to set up its own teams, he departed Sauber and moved to Toro Rosso to help the team.
