Back in 2014, a determined drive from burgeoning talent Jules Bianchi around the streets of Monte-Carlo earned the Frenchman and backmarkers Marussia their first-ever points in F1. It would prove to be a particularly poignant result for driver and team, with Bianchi tragically passing away just over a year later and the squad dropping off the grid not long after. We sat down with his former team mate, Max Chilton, to go behind-the-scenes of that Monaco weekend and reflect on Bianchi’s legacy in the sport.

Chilton and Bianchi’s motorsport paths crossed long before their time together at Marussia, with their journeys to single-seaters and eventually F1 starting like many others: pounding around kart tracks across Europe and trying to make an impression.
