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.

It is unknown whether Bianchi will sufficiently recover from his crash at Suzuka to continue his career, but what is important is that he focuses on getting better first. Racing can wait.

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 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 2015.

But in a wet Japan, Bianchi skidded off the track and collided with a recovery vehicle. He 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.
