Jules Bianchi suffered severe head injury in Japanese GP F1 crash
Jules Bianchi has suffered a severe head injury and is undergoing surgery following his crash in the Japanese Grand Prix, the FIA has confirmed.
Marussia Formula 1 driver Bianchi crashed on lap 43 of the Suzuka F1 race, going off the track at Turn 7 shortly after Adrian Sutil had spun into the barriers at the same place.
Bianchi's Marussia hit the rear of a recovery vehicle that was being used to recover the stranded Sauber.
After being removed from the car, he was taken to the Suzuka circuit's medical centre before being transported to the Mie General hospital in an ambulance. He was unconscious throughout.
A statement issued by motor racing's governing body on Sunday night said: "The CT scan shows that he has suffered a severe head injury and is currently undergoing surgery.
"Following this, he will be moved to intensive care where he will be monitored.
"Mie General Hospital will issued an update as soon as further information becomes available."
The FIA confirmed that double waved yellow flags had been displayed after Sutil's accident to act as a warning for drivers.
