In the rainy 2014 Japanese Grand Prix , the fifteenth round of the season, Jules Bianchi suffered serious injuries that would later cost him his life after nine months in a coma in Nice hospital, where he died on July 17, 2015.
Almost a year after Jules Bianchi ‘s death, in 2016, his father revealed in an interview with CNN that he continued to cry “every day” and a private detail with a heartbreaking revelation.
“Every day, every moment, I see his photo, I scream. It’s not normal to lose your son,” said the father of the late pilot.
“It is a very difficult situation for all families who have lost a child. It is very difficult for me. It is very difficult for the mother. It is very difficult for all of us,” he added.
Jules Bianchi’s last conversation with his father
Bianchi’s father also revealed the last words he said to his son moments before the accident at the Suzuka circuit. It was really nothing special, but the routine that both followed before each Formula 1 grand prix.
Less than 24 hours before the event in which his son hit a crane that was working to recover Adrian Sutil’s car, he had sent his son his usual message.
“I’m with you. Tomorrow I’ll be with you in your car,” Philippe wrote to him as a routine.
Bianchi never responded to that message and his father confessed that this was the first time he had not. “Maybe he knew there was a problem…” he said.
After a review of what happened in the Bianchi accident in Japan; In December 2014, the highest motoring body published a report to reach a conclusion on the accident, highlighting that Bianchi had not driven slowly enough to avoid losing control of his car, which led him to hit the crane.
The verdict upset Bianchi’s family, who took legal action to learn the truth of the accident.
“I lost the most important thing in my life and I have nothing to lose anymore,” Philippe said of the lawsuit against the FIA, the Marussia team and Formula One Management (FOM).
“I want Jules’ memory to be correct. I can’t accept what was said about him.”
“He was a very, very good son. He was a good man, a great friend. I know because his friends talk to me and tell me how special he was,” he concluded.
Jules Bianchi is still in our memory every day, seven years later. The brilliant young driver is the last to die during a Formula 1 race and hopefully he will be forever. Forever Jules .
