Street named in honour of Jules Bianchi

The late Formula One driver Jules Bianchi has had a street in his home town of Nice, France, named after him.

The Frenchman, the first driver to score championship points for Manor, was honoured at a ceremony on Monday.

The former 'rue du Sapin' was renamed 'rue Jules Bianchi' in the driver's honour.

Bianchi died in a hospital in Nice in 2015 having spent nine months in a coma after suffering a diffuse axonal injury when he crashed at the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix.
