My highlight of the 2017 season is not Formula 1-related, or even an on-track moment. It is the evening that Billy Monger walked out on stage, by himself, at the FIA Prize Giving Gala in Versailles, just seven months after both of his lower legs were amputated in the wake of a horrific Formula 4 crash. We will never know what Monger could have achieved, had he completed the season and continued to progress through the ranks without the crash, but what shone through in the immediate aftermath was an incredibly positive outlook and an infectious personality.
