The City of Nice French city have confirmed that they will name a street after the late Jules Bianchi who passed away in July 2015.

Bianchi lay in a coma for eight months before passing away due to injuries suffered at the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix. 

Tech 1 Racing have also confirmed that they will run Jules Bianchi Society logos on its racing liveries in Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 for 2017. 

Bianchi raced in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series with the French team in 2012 where he finished runner up, before going on to make his Formula One debut with Marussia a year later. 

Tech 1 is backing the Jules Bianchi Society, set-up by Philippe and Christine Bianchi, which helps young patients and their families in hospitals and also promotes young exciting racers in karting. 

Nice city officials confirmed a street located in front of the Allianz Riviera stadium will be named after Bianchi and there will be a celebratory ceremony on Monday 23rd January.
