"Bianchi’s compatriot Romain Grosjean, a close friend of the former Marussia driver, greeted Felipe Massa, Nico Hulkenberg and Daniil Kvyat, as they arrived for the service on Tuesday. Jenson Button, Sebastian Vettel, Nico Rosberg and four-times champion Alain Prost were also in attendance."
"Sebastian Vettel, the four-time world champion, and F1 Lotus driver and fellow Frenchman Romain Grosjean helped carry Bianchi's coffin after the service."
"In addition, and for the first time since 2011, there will be no in-season testing."
"Honda is now evaluating what impact that decision has on its plans for both the Hungarian Grand Prix and beyond."
"This makes the vehicle, developed by engineers at the University of Stuttgart in Germany, faster than a Formula One racing car or the world's fastest road car the Bugatti Veryon."
Comment of the day
Fernando Alonso didn’t see the chequered flag at the 2006 Hungarian Grand Prix – but was it still one of his best drives?
Alonso was an absolute monster in this race, simply out of this world.
He started 15th and overtook nine cars on the opening lap. Before Raikkonen’s crash brought out the safety car on lap 26, he was 39 seconds ahead of the McLaren’s while not even at 40% race distance. Insanity.
Alonso was Senna-esque that race.
