    Such awful news!
    Like a punch to the gut. I had just shown some of the guys at work her YouTube video driving a van around the Ring at rocket speed.
    Sad, she had such a warm personality and a tremendously gifted driver.

    So shocking... only 51. such a young person. always liked her on-cam personality, and from that, I hear she was a real genuine what you see is what you get person. Truly RIP. she was on one of my bucket lists to get a ring ride from.

    Oh no, that's terrible news! :(

    I would have loved to go for a ride along with her on the Nürburgring someday. :(

    All the best,
    Andrew.

    Murray and Sabine in the same week. I didn't know she was sick but wondered why she dropped off of the American version of Top Gear (prior to it dropping into thin air). A brilliant driver and was a credit to that program. RIP

    What a joy to watch. Thank you.

    I heard she was ill. She always came across as genuine and a terribly nice person. Would have loved to see her drive the Ring as a Senior. 2021, give us a break. Very sad news yet again.
    Sincere condolences to her family and friends.

    My favorite memory of her was an appearance she had with Michael Schumacher. After, I always thought they should have had superbabies, able to drive the ring blindfolded etc

    Interestingly enough her other passion was horse riding, something the Schumachers do/did as well.

    There is talk now that a part of the Nordschleife will be named after her. That'd be only fitting for the Queen of the Ring.

    There should be NO talk. It should be done.
