Jules Bianchi remains in a critical condition in ICU having undergone emergency surgery on Sunday night.

The Frenchman suffered a "severe head injury" when he hit a tractor in Sunday's Japanese GP.

The vehicle was in the gravel trap recovering Adrian Sutil's Sauber, who had gone off at Turn 7 moments before Bianchi lost control of his MR03 at the same corner in heavy rain.

Taken to the Mie Prefectural General Medical Centre in Yokkaichi, the nearest hospital to the track, the 25-year-old was diagnosed with a "severe" head injury and underwent surgery.

He was then transferred to ICU and although initial reports claimed he was breathing unaided, Sky Sports News is this morning reporting that he is on respirator.

According to the broadcaster, Bianchi is "still in a very critical condition" and is "still fighting for his life."

Craig Slater reports that he is "unfortunately breathing unaided. He still relies on a respirator that enables him to breathe."

He also refuted rumours that Bianchi had a second operation, saying he has "not undergone a second surgical procedure."

Fight Bianchi!
I really hope this turns out okay! I watched the race but they didn't show anything at the replay of the crash. Thanx for the information!

Someone is getting hanged for not taking out the safety car in time.

The Daily Star reports that Green Flags WERE being waved moments before Jules Bianchi's horror smash. The FIA had issued a statement that yellow flags - a signal to a driver to slow down and be prepared to stop - were being waved following the incident involving Adrian Sutil. But horrific footage of the Bianchi crash has come to light showing that in fact GREEN flags were being waved immediately before. Green flags indicate the driver has passed the potential danger point and that prohibitions imposed by yellow flags have been lifted. Eight seconds before the smash, it's reported that only greens - and NO yellows - are waving.


The FIA is to consider a change in the decision-making process regarding safety car deployment. At present the safety car is the sole responsibility of the FIA race director Charlie Whiting. The FIA will now consider whether the decision process should be handled by more than one person, but this will require in-depth analysis before changes can be made. They will also look at the consistency of the safety car deployments.

Holy son of a bitch! He hit the right rear corner of the tractor which was backing up while carying Sutil's car!



Professor Gerard Saillant, who oversaw the initial treatment of Michael Schumacher following his skiing accident, is set to arrive at the hospital on Tuesday.

Craig Slater is reporting: "We know that Professor Gerard Saillant, who is a good friend of Jean Todt, is due to come here on Tuesday.

"He is one of the world's leading orthopedic surgeons but he advised the Schumacher family when they were undertaking his initial treatment in Grenoble after his skiing accident last December.

"He was a kind of intermediary figure between the doctors treating Schumacher and the family and it seems as though he's going to play a similar role here."
