The former Grand Prix driver, who is from King's Lynn, took to Twitter before the turn of the year to say: 'HNY Team. May all your problems be small ones. Never waste a heartbeat.'

His 650,000 followers clearly appreciated the message of goodwill, replying to his tweet to thank him for his 'lovely sentiments' and calling him 'one of the coolest guys on the planet'.

Some saw the tweet as a reference to his own health problems earlier this year, which saw him taken ill just before the British Grand Prix and kept him out of the commentary box for two races.

'Don't be giving us another care,' one tweeter wrote.

The former Benetton, McLaren and Jordan driver, who now commentates for Sky Sports, also gave fans a poignant message before Christmas, saying: 'We're fortunate to inhabit a miracle little planet in a vast Universe.'

He also said: 'It's crazy and sad some want to hurt and kill others. But there's lots of amazing people and experiences to appreciate too.'
