Jules Bianchi funeral….

All of our thoughts are with Jules' family and friends in Nice today. #CiaoJules #JB17

The funeral of Jules Bianchi holds in his hometown of Nice, France. Large posters of Bianchi were draped outside the entrance of the city’s Sainte Reparate Cathedral as fans gathered outside saw drivers like Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg, Felipe Massa and Olivier Panis arrive to pay their respects. Bianchi, 25, died on Saturday as a result of severe head injuries in a crash at the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix. His car number, 17, is being retired from F1 in his honour. Bianchi is the first F1 driver to die from injuries sustained in a grand prix since Brazilian triple world champion Ayrton Senna was killed at the San Marino Grand Prix in Imola in 1994.
