'No respect for the life of a driver' - Philippe Bianchi leads social media anger

'No respect for the life of a driver' - Philippe Bianchi leads social media anger

The father of late Formula 1 driver Jules Bianchi has led outrage over a recovery vehicle being allowed on track while drivers were behind the safety car at the Japanese Grand Prix.

Bianchi was killed in 2014 when his car hit a recovery vehicle in Suzuka, and his father Philippe believes that the 2022 incident at the same track shows "no respect for the life of the driver and no respect for Jules' memory".

While the race was red-flagged and waiting to restart following heavy rainfall, McLaren driver Lando Norris tweeted his shock at the incident, declaring that it was "unacceptable."

F1 fans across Twitter and other social media platforms were also outraged, with "Jules" and "tractor" both trending topics as supporters worldwide registered their shock.
