The tragic death of Jules Bianchi has seen teams decorating their cars, drivers' helmets and garages with the #JB17 stickers.

Bianchi died the previous Friday (July 17), nine months after sustaining head injuries in a impact with a recovery vehicle in torrential rain during the 2014 Japanese F1 GP at Suzuka.

BURIED IN HIS HOME TOWN

The 25-year-old was buried in his home city, Nice in southern France, on Tuesday (July 21).

His coffin, his helmet poignantly 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".

Ferrari decorated its garage in tributes, drivers added personal stickers to their helmets, their cars have been emblazoned with messages.

Here are some of the F1 teams' Jules Bianchi tributes:
