This is something I didn't want to ever write about, however I'm sad to say that Jules Bianchi passed away on Friday night in the Centre Hospitalier in his hometime of Nice.

The news broke after his family released a statement explaining that Jules had lost his battle and was no longer with us. They also requested that we respect their privacy during this awful time.

Formula One fans all over the world have come together on all forms of social media to pay their respects to Jules, there have been outpourings of grief on Twitter coming from both fans and drivers as we all try to come to terms with what has happened.

As I said in my update a few weeks ago, Jules was a driver with massive potential. He could and should have gone to the very top of the sport.

This is the hardest article that I have ever had to write, so I'll end it with this...

Jules Bianchi was a young, and very talented driver who had massive potential, however he was also a son, brother, partner and a friend.

Yes we can talk about how we have lost such a talented young driver, but we also have to talk about how we've also lost a kind young man, who had his whole future ahead of him.

Thank you Jules for all the good times you gave the fans, throughout your career and it is with absolute certainty that I say you will never be forgotten, you will live on in all of our hearts forever.

R.I.P Jules.
