    New Zealand motorsport great Graham McRae has died aged 81


    He featured in one lap of the 1973 Formula One British Grand Prix and finished 16th in the Indianapolis 500 the same year.

    McRae had success in the Formula 5000 series, winning the Tasman Series from 1971 to 1973.

    He eventually turned his attention to design - here are his suggestions on how Formula One cars could be improved in 2013.
