Bernard Charles Ecclestone turns a ripe 91-years-young on this day, but with each passing year, F1's former supremo doesn't grow old, he just becomes even more classic.
More than anything else, more than the wheeling and dealing, it's always been about the engines ringing in his ears.
From the Brabham days as a team owner to the modern days as the guardian of the sport, the underlying theme that has always made Mr. 'E' tick is passion. Once a racer, always a racer.
Despite the unsettling current state of the world, Bernie and his young wife Fabiana have their hands full on a daily basis thanks to the couple's young son, Ace, whom they welcomed into their life in the summer of 2020.
The new arrival was the billionaire's first son, joining daughters Tamara, Petra and Deborah from Ecclestone's previous marriages.
