Romain Grosjean will race with a tribute to Jules Bianchi on his helmet in this weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix, commemorating the Frenchman’s ninth-place finish in the 2014 race.
Bianchi scored the first and only points of his Formula 1 career in Monaco two years ago, charging to P9 at the checkered flag to mark a major success for the backmarker Marussia team.
Grosjean revealed his Monaco helmet on Twitter, incorporating a tribute to Bianchi into his usual design to ensure he does not contravene the F1 regulations banning overhauls.
The design features a picture of Bianchi, his #17 race number and his result in Monaco. This year’s race marks the first in Monaco since his passing, with May 25 marking the second anniversary of his points finish.
