Leading British drivers have paid tribute to double Indy 500 winner and 2005 IndyCar champion, Dan Wheldon, who died from injuries sustained in a huge accident at the IndyCar Series finale at Las Vegas on Sunday.

Wheldon, who was competing in the Las Vegas Indy 300 as part of a $5 million challenge to win the race, had started from the back of the 34-car field and was moving his way through the pack when he was involved in a 15-car crash.
