F1 stars pay tribute to Bianchi – drivers attend the funeral of racer Jules Bianchi, who was honored in a service at the Cathedrale Sainte Reparate in Nice on July 21, 2015.

On July 17, 2015, at the age of 25 – F1 youngster Jules Bianchi died from the head injuries he received after crashing on October 5 in damp conditions at the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix.

The frightful death of Bianchi, at the time, made him the first Formula 1 driver to have been killed in a race since Brazilian FI legend Ayrton Senna’s death at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix.

A year that has brought unimaginable pain to the Bianchi family.

“Every day, every time I see his photography, I cry,” his father Philippe Bianchi tells CNN’s Amanda Davies.

Phillipe has not watched the crash again — he does not want to relive that moment. “To lose a child is not normal. For all the parents who lose children it’s difficult,” he says. “It’s difficult for me. It’s difficult for his mother. It’s difficult for all.”

Last conversation

Just 24 hours earlier he had sent Jules his customary pre-race message.

“I am with you — tomorrow I am with you in your car,” Philippe said.

Bianchi did not respond. It was the first time he had not responded.

“Perhaps he knew that he had a problem …”

Many F1 drivers’ and teams took to social media account on Sunday to remember Jules Bianchi:

One year already… I miss you my friend. #JB17
