Thank God the proper British Grand Prix trophy was back this year after the cheap sponsor's trophy they presented last year. And what a beautiful trophy it is:


From last year: :ph34r:

Jules Bianchi dies after Japanese F1 Grand Prix crash

French Formula One driver Jules Bianchi has died from his injuries sustained in his October 2014 crash at the Japanese Grand Prix.

Bianchi suffered the most serious race injury since Aryton Senna's death in 1994, crashing into a recovery tractor in wet and treacherous conditions at the Suzuku Circuit.

He had been in a coma for nine months, succumbing to his injuries on Saturday morning.

"Jules fought right to the very end, as he always did, but today his battle came to an end," Bianchi's family said in a statement.

"The pain we feel is immense and indescribable. We wish to thank the medical staff at Nice's [Centre Hospitalier Universitaire] 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 realise just how much Jules had touched the hearts and minds of so many people all over the world."


Sad news, RIP

Jules Bianchi: Formula 1 bids farewell at driver's funeral

The world of motorsport has bid farewell to French Formula 1 driver Jules Bianchi at his funeral in his hometown of Nice.

World champion Lewis Hamilton and many of Bianchi's colleagues joined family and friends at a service in the city's cathedral while fans gathered outside.

The 25-year-old died on Friday from head injuries he sustained in a crash at the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix.

His car number, 17, is being retired from F1 in his honour.

Bianchi had been in a coma since crashing his Marussia car into a recovery vehicle at a rain-hit race last October.

He 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 1994.

Tributes are expected to be paid at the Hungarian Grand Prix this weekend.

A number of Formula 1 colleagues travelled to Nice to pay their respects on Tuesday. Large posters of Bianchi were draped outside the cathedral entrance.

"Direction Nice to say goodbye to our colleague, friend Jules," Lotus driver and fellow Frenchman Romain Grosjean posted on Twitter.

Other drivers attending included Nico Rosberg, Felipe Massa, and Olivier Panis.

Sebastian Vettel, the four-time world champion, helped carry Bianchi's coffin out of the cathedral at the end of the service, according to the AFP news agency.

Announcing his death on Saturday, Bianchi's family said: "Jules fought right to the very end, as he always did, but today his battle came to an end."

Former world champion Jenson Button led tributes from the world of motorsport.

"Last night we lost a truly great guy and a real fighter. RIP Jules, my sincerest condolences to his family and friends," the McLaren driver said on Saturday.

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