F1: Jules Bianchi passed away. - July 17, 2015, 10:03 PM

F1 driver Jules Bianchi passes away | FOX Sports


Jules Bianchi, the former French Formula One racing driver who suffered a tragic crash when he collided with a recovery vehicle at the Japanese Grand Prix on Oct. 5, 2014, passed away Saturday morning at the age of 25.
Bianchi had sustained head injuries in the crash and had remained in a coma since the incident.

His family released the following statement:
“It is with deep sadness that the parents of Jules Bianchi, Philippe and Christine, his brother Tom and sister Mélanie, wish to make it known that Jules passed away last night at the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire (CHU) in Nice, (France) where he was admitted following the accident of 5th October 2014 at Suzuka Circuit during the Japanese Formula 1 Grand Prix.
“Jules fought right to the very end, as he always did, but today his battle came to an end,” said the Bianchi family. “The pain we feel is immense and indescribable. We wish to thank the medical staff at Nice’s CHU who looked after him with love and dedication. We also thank the staff of the General Medical Center in the Mie Prefecture (Japan) who looked after Jules immediately after the accident, as well as all the other doctors who have been involved with his care over the past months.

"Furthermore, we thank Jules’ colleagues, friends, fans and everyone who has demonstrated their affection for him over these past months, which gave us great strength and helped us deal with such difficult times. Listening to and reading the many messages made us realize just how much Jules had touched the hearts and minds of so many people all over the world.
"We would like to ask that our privacy is respected during this difficult time, while we try to come to terms with the loss of Jules.”

Jules Bianchi was a rising star in Formula One and scored the only points for the Manor Marussia F1 team to date when he finished in ninth place at the 2014 Monaco Grand Prix.



This is the crash

This is the second driver death on the Marussia team in under 3 years.
Something about this team is cursed.

Horrible tragedy with Bianchi but F1 takes the blame for this. No way there should be cars circulating with any sort of exposed machinery within the track barriers whatsoever less a red flag.

One of the reasons they instituted they virtual safety car this season which electronically turns the engine power down.

they still have full power.. vsc pretty much gives the drivers a speed and time limit in between marshalled sectors. the have to stay above a minimum time set for the sector.... they can go 40mph for 30 seconds and 75mph for the rest of the sector if they need to make the time.. they had a vsc in silverstone 2 weeks ago and lewis did this..


ay ya yay

FIA to retire No. 17 from Formula 1 in honor of Bianchi | FOX Sports

FIA to retire No. 17 from Formula 1 in honor of Jules Bianchi

The FIA has confirmed that Jules Bianchi's No. 17 will no longer be used in the F1 World Championship.

Since last season, drivers have chosen a number that lasts for the whole of their career in the category.

An FIA statement said: "Jean Todt, President of the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) announced that the car No. 17 will be retired from the FIA Formula One World Championship in honor of Jules Bianchi.

"As F1 car numbers are now personally chosen by each driver, the FIA believes it to be an appropriate gesture to retire Jules Bianchi's No. 17. As a result, this number can no longer be used for a car competing in the FIA Formula One World Championship."

I may be confusing F1 with another series.
You sure? I thought there was an electronic limiter that also kicked in.
Or maybe it was something they were also experimenting with.

But for some reason I remember F1 drivers being not exactly pleased with yet another layer of control over the car's systems. Who would be responsible if the box wouldn't unrestrict an engine during a race after the VSC period.

Leave it to Todt to get it right, and for Bernie to be completely oblivious (as usual) and worry about making more money.
