Formula One teams are reportedly planning to carry ‘#CiaoJules’ on their cars in the upcoming Hungarian Grand Prix race as a mark of respect to late French driver Jules Bianchi.

The 25-year-old passed away last Friday after succumbing to brain injuries sustained in a crash at the Japanese Grand Prix on October 5.

According to the Daily Express, a minute’s silence is also expected to be observed before the race.

Bianchi had been in coma since crashing his Marussia car into a recovery vehicle in wet conditions at Suzuka nine months ago.

The International Automobile Federation (FIA) had announced that Bianchi’s car number 17 would be retired as a mark of respect to the Frenchman.

The Frenchman made his F1 debut with Marussia in 2013 and was also a member of the Ferrari young driver academy.
