The world of motorsport has bid farewell to French Formula 1 driver Jules Bianchi at his funeral in his hometown of Nice.
World champion Lewis Hamilton and many of Bianchi’s colleagues joined family and friends at a service in the city’s cathedral while fans gathered outside.
The 25-year-old died on Friday from head injuries he sustained in a crash at the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix.
His car number, 17, is being retired from F1 in his honour.
Bianchi had been in a coma since crashing his Marussia car into a recovery vehicle at a rain-hit race last October.
He is the first F1 driver to die from injuries sustained in a grand prix since Brazilian triple world champion Ayrton Senna was killed at the San Marino Grand Prix in 1994.
Tributes are expected to be paid at the Hungarian Grand Prix this weekend.
Sebastian Vettel, the four-time world champion, and F1 Lotus driver and fellow Frenchman Romain Grosjean helped carry Bianchi’s coffin after the service.
Other drivers attending included Nico Rosberg, Felipe Massa, and Olivier Panis.
