A name that should last long in the future of Formula One is Marussia’s Jules Bianchi, tipped to become France’s future star. The 24 year-old will enter his second season with Marussia and will hope to finally earn the team their first ever point as the new rules throw up all sorts of possibilities.
Bianchi is a member of Ferrari’s famed driving academy and is highly rated amongst driving experts. He underlined this with an impressive 2013 where he regularly outshone his team-mate Max Chilton. Chilton is no slouch but the Frenchman was, at times, nearly two seconds a lap quicker. Even in a slow car like Marussia, that is seriously impressive.
He made is F1 debut in 2013 after grabbing the last seat on the grid, just a matter of weeks before the new season began. After being hotly tipped to take the Force India seat alongside Paul di Resta, in a team he spent last season as a reserve driver, he narrowly missed out to Adrian Sutil.
However, a late reprieve came in the shape of Marussia who, having seemed to have confirmed their driver line-up, terminated the contract of Luis Razia, who had only signed a few weeks before. After a winter of uncertainty, he will be forgiven for a slow start in comparison to team mate Max Chilton who has attended all of the inter test sessions, but you can expect to see the highly rated Jules impose himself soon.
Bianchi boasts an impressive junior career including back-to-back third placed finishes in GP2, and a Formula Three Euroseries title. With the substantial backing he as from Ferrari, Bianchi will be around in formula one for the foreseeable future should he produce the results.
2013 was a good start but this year he will hope to really make headlines by scoring Marussia’s first ever point. Impressing at the back has always proven to be difficult but if Bianchi does that this season, you can expect him higher up the grid next season.
