Media reports suggested that the 25 year old could be shifted out of the hospital in Japan and moved to another hospital in Europe. But his family has denied any such reports.

Bianchi's family said, "At this time his fight will continue here in Yokkaichi. We are taking things step by step."

Jules Bianchi was admitted in the hospital due to severe head injury after the Japanese Grand Prix, when he lost control of his car in the rain affected race and slid off the road, under a recovery vehicle which was clearing the track after another car had crashed on the previous lap.

The crash left Bianchi unconscious immediately. He was rushed to Mie General Medical Center in Yokkaichi, where he underwent surgeries and is being treated for diffuse axonal traumatic brain injury.
