F1 tributes to Marco Simoncelli

Jarno Trulli wearing a Simoncelli replica helmet in this weekend's Indian GP

THIS weekend's inaugural Indian Grand Prix sees several tributes to Marco Simoncelli from the teams and drivers in F1.

Most notable is Italian Team Lotus driver Jarno Trulli, who has been wearing a Simoncelli-replica helmet throughout the event so far. Ferrari's Felipe Massa is also sporting the number 58 on his helmet for the weekend, and SuperSic's number also appears on both Toro Rosso cars.

The HRT squad has painted black ribbons on both its cars as a joint tribute to both Simoncelli and IndyCar driver Dan Wheldon, who died a week before the Italian in a multi-car crash at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
