The Family of Jules Bianchi Makes Claims that Formula One Officials are Hiding Something about the Crash that Killed Jules Bianchi
As of this weekend it’s been two since F1 driver Jules Bianchi was involved in a tragic crash in the Japanese Grand Prix. Bianchi died 8 months latter in hospital.
After all that time, the family of the F1 driver is still seeking answers. They have gone to the lengths of opening a lawsuit against the sport of F1.

However, this story gets even more dramatic. Philippe Bianchi, father of Jules, has made claims that he believes F1 is hiding something about the crash that took his son’s life.
“It is obvious that we seek to understand, because the evidence that was given to us and the tiny investigation that was done is not sufficient,” he told the French broadcaster Canal Plus.
“I think this was not a normal circumstance, so we must not say that Jules had responsibility in this accident,” he said. “I also want that it doesn’t happen again, but what do we most lack today? It is justice and truth. That’s the first point, because it’s difficult to mourn something in the conditions that we are being asked to. It’s almost impossible. We have clearly identified that there were significant errors that were made.”
Philippe Bianchi is claiming that F1 officials are hiding something about the crash.
We have asked for some time for images from Jules’ on-board camera. For example, for official images from FOM to understand what happened, and we never managed to get them. We just want Jules’ death to be respected.
So why is F1 keeping the on-board video from the crash to themselves? You would think it’s out of respect to the family. However, it appears that the family themselves haven’t even seen it, yet they have requested it.
Perhaps F1 officials are just protecting their own image. A video of a crash that killed a series competitor may not be good promotion for the sport. Or, maybe the family’s suspicions are correct and the series is in fact hiding something. A lawsuit has been filled by the family to get the answers of this tragic story.
Once a die hard F1 fan. Philippe Bianchi said he has not watched any F1 events since that tragic day in Japan, two years ago.
“There is a huge lack of our lives, and this is a terrible date for us. Nothing will ever be the same.”
