    That MAN had a name. Out of respect they shouldn't have reported news as ¨unnamed marshal¨.

    Bram is correct. Imagine them seeing on a web page the title ''Marshall killed at Canadian GP'' and the name of their husband/father/son in the text. They wanted to tell it softly. I saw his name somewhere, but since they don't want to announce it, I will accept and respect the decision and not mention it.

    It's basically been said already but I feel like making it obvious, it's out of respect that they post the news without a name, respect for the family and friends.

    Shocked to see this news today :-(. As the race was taking place Martin Brundle commented on how he hates to see the cranes by the track as the cars are still racing, but to think this tragic accident would take place is so sad. R.I.P

    They never say the name until the next of kin is informed and then it's up to the family to give the name.
    It makes me sad that someone had to die for what he loves doing and what most likely was his hobby (I don't know how marshals get picked). R.I.P. my friend a sad day for the motorsport and the Canadian grandprix and all the best to the family in these hard times.

    Maybe the family don't want it published? To stop the press from harassing them that's what i would do.

    i'm from Montreal and i just read that the family asked not his name to be publish, they will also not comment the tragedy and ask that their private life is respected. Rest in peace :(

    Its with great sadness that I read of this tragedy.
    Condolences to the family.
    I was at the Melbourne GP of 2001 when Mr Beveridge was killed.
    The drivers were noticeably sombre at the podium there and no champagne was issued. Schumacher made mention of him and passed condolences in the post race interview. I guess his fate was not known by this stage at Montreal.
    I hope his family are ok.

    This accident took place about the same time the podium celebration was starting. So the drivers/teams would not have known about it until after the podium celebrations ended.
