Jules Bianchi Update Thread [Split Thread]

Post by wire2004 »

Finally. The BBC has said he has hit the JCB.

I hope to god he is OK.

Feel its worth a thread as this is big and possibly grave news.

I shouldn't need to ask to keep it respectful people. But please do

I felt at the time that they didn't need to bring the tractor thing on the track. Should have left the car in the barriers until after the race. Charlie Whiting is having a terrible day. Hope Jules is ok, could be similar to De Vilota's incident way back.

I was thinking the same, one minute sutil's car was up on the crane and a minute later it was back on the ground.

Hope everything's OK.

If it's dangerous enough to bring out a SC, why can't they wait just a lap longer before bringing the crane out? Hindsight I know....

It's been said on the t.v commentary out here on Star Sports that Bianchi was unconscious when he was being air lifted to the hospital.

Hoping he gets well soon.

Wasn't the crash caught on camera?

I'm not looking at any pictures until I know he lives.

I'm just too uncomfortably reminded of incidents in the past with cars going under something. It's not as bad as Cevert I'm sure or we would have heard by now, but Senna was just taken away from the track to a hospital as well... :(

Praying that the car hasn't gone underneath the counterweight/engine area at the back. Worrying that the far side tyre was flat.

No news is not good news. The Japanese track crew have been very efficient at removing cars in the past but drivers must be more respectful of waved yellows. Latest news is that he is awake in the helicopter as I type,

I have to sleep as I am on nights tonight and last night. But I have asked the mods. (Is there any other way to get in contact with all of them without having to report the post) to if anything happens and the worst does happen. If they can rename the thread for me why I am sleeping.

That isn't the latest news. Helicopter hasn't flown. He's unconscious and being taken by road. According to the FIA delegate.

Without going too much into detail. Do you remember what the prof said about that incident with senna when he was there. And he was airlifted.

I think the FIA and the people in charge will get a lot of stick for this. They should've run the race earlier.

I mean racing without the helicopter. That is just stupid. So stupid. So so stupid.

That was well before my time of watching F1 unfortunately, but I have a good idea of how much information was available at the time and what we later found out the doctors knew already at the time. Just hoping it's not the case here.

Ted Kravitz explained that at some race tracks - of which Suzuka is one - the helicopter out of action is not a race stopping event as they have it set up for the ambulance to have a police escort to the hospital.

The Hospital he will go too is very close. This Helicopter thing really isn't an issue It would not speed up his transfer.

It has been a long time since I've seen F1 look as concerned about an accident.

No replays. Concerned paddock. Media looking glum but obviously cannot speculate on whispers, and hesitant official word from FIA....

I am really concerned about this today. The signs are pointing to this being a black day for F1

I was thinking the same, remembering a Brazilian Grand Prix and one at the Nürburgring. They seriously need to re-think what constitutes "a dangerous place".
Use every man after his desert, and who should scape whipping? Use them after your own honour and dignity.

According to Sky the FIA requested an earlier start for the race twice but the Race organisers declined.

It does look as though the Marussia did contact the rear of the recovery vehicle. Fingers crossed for Jules, what an awful end and reminder of the risks of this sport.

I understand this is a sensitive topic, but we cannot allow people to start attributing blame when there is close to zero information about the events that have unfolded. Any such posts will be deleted, and if they continue the thread will have to be locked.

The info from RTL, he wasn't taken by helicopter after all, and his condition has gone worse.
