Jules Bianchi : A look back at the tragic accident that cost him his life at the Japanese Grand Prix in 2014

Since the creation of Formula 1 in 1946 and the first world championship four years later, no fewer than 44 drivers have died during a Formula 1 weekend.
Including Jules Bianchi, the French motorsport prodigy, who tragically passed away in 2015.

A great hope for French motorsport
Presented as a karting genius during his childhood, Jules Bianchi discovered single-seater racing in 2007.
The Nice native quickly rose through the ranks with several notable performances in lower competitions, until finally arriving in Formula 1 at the start of the 2013 season.
He started with Manor Marussia F1 Team, a modest Russian team, whose car clearly cannot compete with other big names like Red Bull, Mercedes or even Ferrari,
whose young driver academy he had joined. At the end of his first year in F1, Jules Bianchi finished in 19th place in the world championship, having competed in 19 Grands Prix.
The man who was Charles Leclerc's mentor clearly aims to do much better, despite Marussia's significant delays over the competitors.
