Jules Bianchi, the 25 year old Formula One driver for team Marussia, still remains in the hospital and his father, Philippe says that his condition is unchanged and the situation is desperate.
Bianchi still remains in the hospital in Japan after his horrific crash during the Japanese Grand Prix, when he lost control over his car and rear ended a recovery tractor, which was deployed to clear Adrian Sutil's car, after he lost control a lap before Bianchi.
A statement from team Marussia read:
"The past nine days have been extremely difficult for Jules and his family. As a consequence of the accident at Suzuka, a number of medical challenges have needed to be overcome and the situation remains challenging due to the diffuse axonal traumatic brain injury Jules has sustained."
"Jules remains in a critical but stable condition in the Intensive Care Unit of Mie General Medical Center in Yokkaichi. The Bianchi family continue to be comforted by the thoughts and prayers of Jules' many fans and the motor sport community. In particular, the many demonstrations of support and affection during the course of the Russian Grand Prix in Sochi were of enormous comfort to Jules' parents and the relatives and friends also present at the hospital."
"The family will provide further medical updates when appropriate."
