BBC Sport - Jules Bianchi: Driver's father reflects on the life of his son

Bianchi's father remembers son Jules

In an exclusive interview with the BBC's sports editor Dan Roan, the father of Formula 1 driver Jules Bianchi discusses the emotions he feels as the one-year anniversary of his son's fatal crash at the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix approaches.

F1 returns to the Suzuka circuit this weekend for the first time since the 25-year-old French driver suffered severe head injuries when his Marussia car skidded off the wet track in poor light and collided with a recovery crane last October.

"He was in motorsport since he was three years old on my go-kart track, and all his life he loved motorsport," says Philippe Bianchi.

"It's a difficult moment because it marks one year now that Jules had his crash, and this week is not a good week for the Bianchi family."
