By now you’ll have probably heard about the death of the former F1 driver in a freak accident last weekend at Pocono Raceway in the US. Tributes have been pouring in from competitors and others via social media.

Wilson was hit by a piece of debris from the car of Sage Karam on Sunday during the ABC Supply 500. Replays indicate that the nose cone of Karam’s car struck Wilson’s helmet. Wilson then veered into the inside wall.

However, what you may not know is that Justin’s organs have helped to save six lives, according to his brother, Stefan.

Justin leaves behind his wife Julia and two daughters. The Wilson Children’s Fund has been set up and you can send donations to:
