French Formula One driver Jules Bianchi has died of injuries suffered during last year’s Japanese Grand Prix.

The 25-year-old had been in a coma since the accident at Suzuka last October.

He sustained severe head injuries after his car crashed into a recovery tractor in wet conditions and bad light.

It’s the first fatality from injuries suffered at a grand prix since Brazilian triple world champion Ayrton Senna died at the Imola circuit in Italy in May 1994.
