Formula One to observe a minute of silence for the late Jules Binachi

Formula One has just announced that it will be holding a minute of silence at this year's Hungarian Grand Prix as a tribute to the late Jules Bianchi, who recently died from head injuries he sustained from the devastating crash last year in Japan.

Bianchi succumbed to his injuries after nine months of battling it while in recovery. Last July 21, his funeral was held in Nice, France and was attended by several Formula One drivers including: Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg, Sebastian Vettel, Jenson Button, Romain Grosjean, Daniel Ricciardo, Danill Kvat, Nico Hulkenberg, Marcus Ericsson, Pastor Maldonado and Felipe Massa.

“I will be carrying Jules with me in my prayers and thoughts, not only this race but for the rest of my driving days. I know he'd want us to race hard as he did, and so will I,” said Hamilton.

The minute of silence will begin at 1345 hours (1945 Philippine time), 15 minutes before the start of the 2015 Hungarian Grand Prix.
