A brilliant tribute to Jules Bianchi
Now that’s a grand prix.
After a moving ceremony at the front of the grid to honour the late Marussia driver, Hungary produced a stunning race that did everything possible to live up to the occasion.
A weekend of reflection clearly had an effect on motorsport’s finest, as time and again the drivers went wheel-to-wheel on a track that doesn’t usually lend itself to overtaking manoeuvres.
Daniel Ricciardo summed it up afterwards, saying: “This race was for Jules. I left everything on the track, whether some competitors like it or not, that is how I wanted to do it. That is how I will always do it.
“Watching Jules grow up, that was how he did it. He had amazing racecraft and made some pretty impressive lunges.”
Thanks for the race, Jules.
