The Grand Prix Drivers Association has paid tribute to Jules Bianchi, and vowed to continue its push to improve safety in the sport.
The organisation said in a statement: “Formula 1 has lost a great talent, a great man and a great friend today. Twenty-one years after the deaths of Ayrton Senna and Roland Ratzenberger, we have now lost Jules, who has died as a direct consequence of an on track accident.
“It is at times like this that we are brutally reminded of how dangerous racing still remains. Despite considerable improvements, we, the Grand Prix drivers, owe it to the racing community, to the lost ones and to Jules, his family and friends, to never relent in improving safety.
“Our sincerest condolences go out to Jules’ family and friends.”
