This was perhaps a mercy, but no less tragic.

A real shame but for the best, I suspect. He was a cracking driver too. That's two drivers Marussia have lost through accidents.

And both freak accidents, at that, with both de Villota's and Bianchi's cars striking support vehicles positioned away from the course. Just desperate bad fortune for this plucky team.

But how's this for pluck? On the very same day that Jules Bianchi died, his team-mate at that fateful race, Max Chilton, has scored his first victory in the Indy Lights championship, Stateside. A tough-nut with heart. Good on him!

Ferrari had decided to assign Bianchi as Raikkonen's replacement, it transpires.

Shame we'll never know how good he would have become. He definitely had the gift. RIP Jules.

Desperately sorry to see former F1 driver Justin Wilson has died from injuries sustained in an IndyCar race at Pocono.

That's two Brits killed in IndyCar racing in recent times :(
