Ciao Jules: Tributes from across motorsport

On what would have been Jules Bianchi's 26th birthday, Motorsport.com has assembled a selection of tributes from across motorsport to the Frenchman in a special image gallery.

In his short Formula 1 career, Bianchi was part of three teams - Ferrari, Manor Marussia and Force India.

At the Hungaroring, Ferrari carried on its cars a message in Italian: "Jules nei nostri cuori', which means 'Jules in our hearts'.
