Bianchi family to sue F1 authorities
Jules Bianchi's family is launching legal action against F1 authorities over the death of the French driver.
Bianchi, 25, died last year after a late 2014 collision with a trackside recovery vehicle in fading light at Suzuka.
Reports on Thursday ahead of the Monaco grand prix, where in 2014 Bianchi famously scored Marussia's first ever points, said the Bianchi family will sue the team, the Formula One Group companies and the FIA.
"Jules Bianchi's death was avoidable," a lawyer representing the family said.
Jules' father Philippe added: "We seek justice for Jules and want to establish the truth about the decisions that led to our son's crash."
