During practice for the Italian Grand Prix on Friday, a number of drivers ran with tribute stickers to Justin Wilson on their cars following his death at the age of 37 last week.

Wilson died from a severe head injury sustained in the IndyCar ABC Supply 500 at Pocono Raceway on August 23 when he was struck by debris from another car that had crashed.

His death left the IndyCar and F1 communities in mourning, such was the impact that he had made in both series across the course of his racing career.

In FP1 and FP2 at Monza on Friday, many of the drivers ran with tributes to Wilson on their helmets and cars, as seen below.

The arrangements for Wilson’s funeral in the UK have been announced by his family, with details on the one in the United States to follow.
