F1 Driver Bianchi Dies, Months after Grand Prix Crash

French Formula 1 driver Jules Bianchi has passed on, nine months after suffering serious head injuries in a crash at the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix.

Bianchi, 25, had been in a coma since crashing his Marussia into a recovery vehicle at October’s rain-hit race.

His family said: “Jules fought right to the very end, as he always did, but today his battle came to an end.”

The Marussia team, now known as Manor, said Bianchi had left an “indelible mark on all our lives”.
