  1. Very sad circumstances, but extremely uplifting to see the F1 community come together during this time.

  2. Very much so, I'm a little taken aback not to see Fernando and Kimi but perhaps they were not photographed

  3. fernando did not. from what i read he is devastated n so could not attend, understandable considering how close he was to jules.

  4. Man that shot with Vergne with his head down says it all. Definitely and warm and fitting ceremony for the man!

    Respect Always.

    RIP Jules!!!

  5. I will suggest for you guys to hear Max Chilton interview, evidently Jules was someone that will be missed in the F1 community.
