25 year old Marussia Formula One driver Jules Bianchi, who met with an accident and suffered head injuries is still to regain consciousness.
His father, Philippe Bianchi had admitted that hopes in regards to his son's recovery are fading.
The former Marussia Formula One driver met with an accident 10 months ago, when he lost control of his car and slid under a recovery vehicle during the Japanese Grand Prix.
He suffered serious head injuries and was immediately airlifted to the hospital. He was later transferred to a hospital in his hometown, and is yet to regain consciousness.
Philippe Bianchi told France Info radio:
"In general, progress needs to be made in the first six months, And now it's been nine months and Jules has still not woken up and there is no significant progress."
"As time goes by, it makes me less optimistic than I might have been two or three months after the accident when one might have hoped for a better outcome."
"It's hard to get up in the morning while telling yourself that you're not sure whether your son is going to live and every day is like that."
"Jules told us that if one day he had an accident like Michael Schumacher's, even if his only handicap was not being able to drive, he would have a lot of difficulty living with it. Because racing was his life."
