Grosjean to race with Bianchi tribute helmet in Monaco

Haas’ Romain Grosjean will race with a Jules Bianchi tribute on his helmet at this weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix, to celebrate Bianchi’s ninth-place finish at the track in 2014.

The Frenchman got his first and only points in his career in the Monaco Grand Prix two years ago, the best result his team, Manor Marussia, had received. Bianchi died after receiving severe head injuries following an incident at the Japanese Grand Prix that year, after fighting for his life in a coma for nine months.

Grosjean announced his new helmet design via Twitter, which showed his usual design, but featuring a tribute to the deceased driver.

The new design features a picture of Bianchi, his race number (17), and his result in the Monaco 2014 Grand Prix.

This weekend, when the Grand Prix takes place, will revoke memories of the young driver’s success; everyone’s thoughts will be with him.
