Many voices speak that after Sauber's Adrian Sutil spun on lap 42 outside turn 7, the marshals should have despatched the Safety Car, not display double yellows. The track was awash with typical Japanese rain and the sun was setting, conditions which make a minor incident such as Sutil's a crash-in-progress for other drivers that fail to appreciate grip levels on such a wet piece of tarmac. Not only that, but turn 7 is a technical corner that shouldn't be taken lightly.
We reported that due to the bad weather, an unconscious Jules Bianchi couldn't be transported to the hospital via helicopter. Instead, medics took the youngster there by ambulance. With the Mie General Medical Center a few miles away from the circuit, the unconscious Bianchi arrived just in time to have his head injury checked. Eventually, doctors decided to operate Jules because the wound is pretty severe.
Fast forward to the present moment and Bianchi's family released a statement according to which "Jules remains in the Intensive Care Unit. He has suffered a diffuse axonal injury and is in a critical but stable condition… the hospital will continue to monitor and treat Jules," with further medical updates to follow. We're keeping our fingers crossed the Marussia F1 Team driver will recover as quickly as possible. #KeepFightingJules
