Leclerc unveils Bianchi tribute helmet ahead of anniversary


Charles Leclerc has revealed the Jules Bianchi tribute helmet he will run during the Japanese Grand Prix weekend.

Bianchi sustained ultimately fatal head injuries during the 2014 Suzuka race after colliding with a recovery vehicle, succumbing to his injuries in July 2015, nine months later.

He was part of the Ferrari Driver Academy, with his godson Leclerc ultimately racing for the Scuderia, with it being 10 years since the accident at this weekend’s race, although the actual anniversary of the race is in October.

During the weekend, Leclerc will carry a Bianchi tribute helmet design, featuring Bianchi’s race number #17 which was retired by the FIA as a mark of respect following his death.
