Sir Jackie Stewart led the tributes to Former Formula One team chief Ken Tyrrell in a memorial ceremony at Guildford Cathedral on Thursday.
A host of Grand Prix legends turned out in the 500-strong congregation to pay homage to the memory of Tyrrell, a successful boss of his eponymous team, who died on August 25 this year.
Dame Kiri Te Kanawa sang in the service, which was attended by former Tyrrell drivers Jody Scheckter, Julian Bailey, Jonathan Palmer, Martin Brundle, and Jean Alesi.
Current Formula One chiefs Sir Frank Williams and Patrick Head were also present to pay their respects, as were Paul Stoddart of Minardi, McLaren boss Ron Dennis and British American Racing chief Craig Pollock.
Tyrrell's team contested 418 Grands Prix and won one World Championship, with Jackie Stewart in 1971 before being sold to British American Racing in 1998.
