The Hungarian Grand Prix on Sunday will start with a minute of silence in the memory of Jules Bianchi who died nine months after a crash in  the Japanese Grand Prix.

It is expected that all Formula 1 drivers will gather in the front of the grid together with the FIA president Jean Todt and his son Nicolas who was Bianchi’s manager.


“It is only right that we pay tribute to a fine young man and a fine driver who was so unfortunate. It is one of the risks of a high speed sport and it is so sad that Jules paid the ultimate price. But all of us in Formula 1 will want to remember him,” said Formula 1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone.

Bianchi’s funeral will be held on Tuesday morning at the Sainte-Reparate cathedral in Nice, Jules’ hometown and the place where he lost his battle on Friday night.
