Jules Bianchi Biography

Jules Bianchi Marussia MR02

Jules Bianchi Marussia MR02

Before his harrowing crash at the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix, Jules Bianchi was on his way to the very top of Formula 1.

The 25 year-old drove for two years at Marussia, but his affiliation with Ferrari made an eventual move to Italy inevitable.

However, the sadness around the Formula 1 paddock is not only because of what happened, but also because it may have ended a career of a driver who was destined for great things. That was obvious from his first day in the sport.

Bianchi made his debut in the Formula 1 season of 2013 after grabbing the last seat on the grid, just a matter of weeks before the new season began. After being hotly tipped to sign for Force India alongside Paul di Resta 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.

That year, he regularly outshone his team-mate Max Chilton. The Englishman is no slouch but the Frenchman was, at times, nearly two seconds a lap quicker. Even in a slow car like Marussia, that is almost unheard of.

His talent was instantly recognisable and backed up a stellar junior, including back-to-back third placed finishes in GP2, and a Formula Three Euroseries title.

In 2014, he only got better and he scored Marussia’s first ever points with a brilliant drive in Monaco to come ninth. After impressing Ferrari at a mid-season test at Silverstone, rumours began to circulate that he could be driving for the Prancing Horse as early as the 2015 season.

But in a wet Japan, Bianchi skidded off the track and collided with a recovery vehicle that was lifting the crashed Sauber F1 car of Adrian Sutil. Bianchi suffered severe head injuries and was rushed to a local hospital where he remained unconscious for weeks. After two months, he was transferred to his native France where he will continue his recovery.

Jules Bianchi never recovered from his coma and died on the 17th of July 2015. He was the first Formula 1 driver who in more than 21 years who died because of an racing accident. Ayrton Senna was the last driver before Jules Bianchi.

After Bianchi's death the Halo safety device was developed and all F1 cars were fitted with the Halo safety device since the 2018 F1 season. If Bianchi's car of 2014 was fitted with the Halo, he probably would have survived his crash.
