Formula One turned out in force Tuesday to pay its last respects to Jules Bianchi at the 25-year-old French driver's funeral in his hometown of Nice.Two giant portraits of Bianchi in full racing gear adorned the walls either side of the cathedral's main entrance. His coffin, with his No. 17 helmet resting on it, was carried from the hearse into the cathedral by a group of young drivers, described by Father Sylvain Brison as Bianchi's "racing brothers". Bianchi was the first Formula One driver to die as a result of a racing accident since triple world champion Ayrton Senna in San Marino in 1994 .The FIA has announced that in Bianchi's honor it had retired his No. 17 car.
