F1 Wednesday – RIP Jules

I hadn’t planned on another F1 Wednesday quite so soon but over the weekend the news came that sadly Jules Bianchi had passed away after his horrific crash in last years Japanese GP.

Jules Bianchi at Canadian GP 2013

He had the makings of a true champion and the only driver to score points for the Marussia (now Manor F1) team by finishing 10th at last year’s Monaco GP!

We met him briefly when we went to the Canadian GP in 2013. The above photo was taken as he was leaving the autograph area. I believe we for his signature as well!

He was a lovely young man – something that was apparent from watching any interview with him.

Rest In Peace Jules – know that you will never be forgotten.  #ripjules #forzajules

    It so sad. On 17th I was listening to an interview his father made a few days before. As it was in French, I translated it to hubby and we talked about Jules. The next day I’ve seen on twitter that he died, it came as a shock. #RIPJules

      I was up feeding MissMostyn at 3am when I read about it. So sad! 🙁 And I heard this week that Ferrari had plans for him to take over from Kimi. I’m sure he could have been a champion! #RIPJules

    RIP Jules. Such a great talent lost. I remember his crash so well… I knew it was bad and didn’t think he could have survived it. He fought but it wsn’t to be.

    I wasn’t lucky enough to meet Jules, but I did get to meet Justin Wilson who died last year. I think he was with Minardi at the time. Such a nice bloke, another one gone too soon.
