PARIS: Formula One drivers killed during Grand Prix weekends following the death of Jules Bianchi Friday night nine months after a devastating crash at the Japanese Grand Prix: Onofre Marimon (ARG) aged 30 July 31, 1954: Horrific accident in a Maserati during practice for the German Grand Prix at the old Nurburgring track – he was given the last rites shortly afterward.It was while pursuing Hawthorn in a rival Ferrari at the French Grand Prix that he met his end, his car striking a ditch and somersaulting.Oct. 25, 1958: Lewis-Evans, a teammate of Stirling Moss, had secured two podium finishes that season in his Vanwall car and died of severe burns he suffered in the season-ending Moroccan Grand Prix.Sept. 10, 1961: The thin line between success and tragedy were in full bloom in this instance as the German aristocrat only needed to finish third in the Italian Grand Prix to win the championship. However, instead his Ferrari clipped Jim Clark's car and lost control, spinning twice before striking a side barrier which also resulted in the deaths of 15 spectators.Carel de Beaufort(NED) aged 30
