Beckham and Hamilton pay heartbreaking tributes to Bianchi
F1 driver Jules Bianchi has died in a French hospital from head injuries sustained in a crash at last year’s Japanese GP.

He was 25; the Bianchi family announced the death in a statement issued in the early hours of Saturday morning. Bianchi had been in a coma since the Oct. 5 accident, in which he collided at high speed with a mobile crane which was being used to pick up another crashed car.

The family statement said “Jules fought right to the very end, as he always did, but today his battle came to an end. The pain we feel is immense and indescribable.”

Bianchi competed in 34 races over the 2013 and 2014 seasons, scoring the first ever championship points for Manor — then known as Marussia — by finishing ninth at last year’s Monaco Grand Prix.

David Beckham and Lewis Hamilton were among the celebrities to pay heartwarming tributes to Jules Bianchi.

As the devastating news broke, David Beckham and Lewis Hamiltion led the tributes.

“Jules Bianchi may he rest in peace.. Our thoughts are with his family and friends,” Beckham wrote on Instagram alongside a picture of the late sports star.

And fellow Formula One driver, Lewis Hamilton, followed suit.

He wrote: “A sad, sad day today, guys. Please pray for Jules’ loved ones. RIP Jules. God bless.”

Our thoughts are with Jules’ family at this sad time.
