Family will determine further Bianchi news, says Marussia

The Marussia team has made it clear that there will be no further news on Jules Bianchi until the timing is deemed appropriate by his family.

The full statement from the team reads: “Following the accident involving Jules Bianchi during yesterday’s 2014 Formula One Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka Circuit, the Marussia F1 Team would like to acknowledge the huge outpouring of support and affection for Jules and the Team at this very difficult time.

“With regard to the communication of information concerning Jules’ medical condition, we will respect, and be guided by, the wishes of the Bianchi family. Together with Jules’ care, they will remain our highest priority. Therefore, we would ask for patience and understanding with regard to further medical updates, which will be communicated in conjunction with the Mie General Medical Center in Yokkaichi, where Jules is being treated, when they feel it is appropriate.

“Representatives of the Marussia F1 Team and Scuderia Ferrari will remain at the hospital to support Jules and the Bianchi family.”

    I think we are all desperate for constant updates on Jules’ condition, mostly because F1 fans just want to here that “he is ok” – but it is too early to know how he is going to be in the weeks and months ahead. I hope the family understand the curiosity of the fans, and are able to absorb it to some small degree on top of the suffering and uncertainty they already have to face. I wish that every strength, and I think it is absolutely right of the Marussia team to allow the family to call the shots on when information is released.
