    It is with inmense sadness that I communicate this.

    Today I was reading the news from the rockstar games social club for GTA related news and I was shocked to read this and started to cry, Fernando was an RDRC legend, among his many talents was being a master on everything related to GTA, an expert video editor and an inmense number of other things too large to even mention, he did an amazing job of winning the RDRC title on his first complete season in 2012 along with a number of achievements too large to count, I don't even know what to say. I am extremely saddened by this news, Fernando left a great impresion on me as we shared a rivarly on different RBR championships for some time and we were teammates for a while in RDRC aswell, I know it's a stupid comparison but I feel like a Prost who lost his Senna (sorry if this was disrespectful)

    Fernando, I'll never forget you my friend, so many battles so many stages setting up the car trying to get that one extra second just to try to beat you, and you always came up with something, you always managed to surprise me. you managed to become an alien barely after starting simracing, I disliked it when you beat me and that gave me huge satisfaction when I was able to come in front of someone like you. Now I only feel admiration to you man, your work was incredible, and I will massively miss you bro, you made me feel challenged and made me had to work and up my driving to compete with you and you were a friend, I won't forget what I learned from and with you.

    Godsped Fernando

    Terrible news, tonight I go to bed sad, thinking about a great simracer and even greater guy.
    I loved the videos he created, a really talented guy behind the wheel aswell.

    Rest in peace, mate. Thanks for all the fun we had during our meetings.

    Strange how it feels. A guy you've never spoken to, never even seen, and still you feel devastated when he passes away. A guy with loads of talent in many areas is lost, and so are his ideas and talent.

    Rest in Peace.

    Unbelievably sad news, especially for someone so young & such a quick RBR pedaller. My condolences to his family & friends.

    I am simply speechless.
    Fernando, you were such a top guy.
    I had so much fun working with him as me teammate in RDRC. He was simply stunning with his skill as a racer, so incredibly talented at creating videos and an awesome guy to chat to.
    Absolutely shocked. He will be immensely missed.
