Jules Bianchi Still Unconscious: Family

Written By:

Jules Bianchi's family has said in a statement that Jules is still unconscious. The French Formula One racer had met with a crash during the Japanese Grand Prix, in October.

The statement said, "Jules' neurological status remains unchanged. He is unconscious but able to breathe unaided."

"Whilst there is no significant information to report, we take a great deal of comfort from the fact that Jules continues to fight, as we knew he would, and this has enabled the medical professionals caring for him to commence the planned, but very painstaking, programme of rehabilitation therapy."

Bianchi was initially admitted to a hospital in Japan itself, where he underwent surgeries just after his horrific accident. He was shifted to a hospital in France, a month ago.

Jules Bianchi suffered massive head injuries when he lost control of his Formula One car and slid off the track to end up crashing into a recovery vehicle that was deployed to clear another car on the race track.

Bianchi was rushed to the hospital where he was treated for his injuries, which was later identified as "diffuse axonal injury".

After Bianchi was transferred to France, he was initially in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Nice university hospital. Now, he is in the rehabilitation centre, being cared for.
