F1 Driver in Critical Condition

Marussia F1 driver Jules Bianchi is in critical condition after suffering from a head injury during the Japanese Grand Prix.   No video exists thus far the incident but varous photos show that Bianchi's car struck a recovery vehicle (tractor in this case) that was attempting to move a car that had crashed earlier.   IMG_6361


From BBC News:

The 25-year-old was unconscious when he was taken to hospital from Suzuka.

Bianchi was injured after hitting a recovery vehicle, prompting the stoppage of the rain-affected race in Suzuka after 44 laps.

Earlier reports in the French media said Bianchi was breathing on his own following surgery. However there are now conflicting accounts. BBC Sport is seeking clarification on his condition.

Bianchi lost control close to where Sauber driver Adrian Sutil had spun and hit the tyre barrier.

As a recovery vehicle was lifting Sutil's car, Bianchi travelled across the run-off area and hit the back of the tractor.
