After nine long months, Jules Bianchi’s fight has come to an end following his horrific crash at Suzuka last year. The 25-year-old had showed the world he was a star of the future despite being stuck in an uncompetitive Marussia, and his heroic ninth place finish at the 2014 Monaco Grand Prix will go down as one of the true great underdog drives.
I could go on and on but who better to pay tribute to Bianchi than some of the people who knew him best; his fellow racing drivers.
A sad, sad day today, guys. Please pray for Jules’ loved ones. RIP Jules. God bless. pic.twitter.com/ODqQ5uHsyG
