A high-level panel will conduct an investigation into the Japanese GP crash that left Bianchi with life-threatening injuries.
A panel including former F1 world champion Emerson Fittipaldi will investigate the Japanese Grand Prix crash that left Marussia driver Jules Bianchi fighting for his life.
The 10-man high-level panel “will carry out a full review of the accident to gain a better understanding of what happened, and will propose new measures to reinforce safety at circuits,” the International Automobile Federation (FIA) said.
The panel will begin its investigation this week and present its findings at the World Motor Sport Council in Doha on December 3, a statement by the FIA revealed.
Bianchi crashed into a recovery tractor at the Suzuka circuit on October 5, with the 25-year-old suffering life-threatening brain injuries.
A statement released by Marussia on behalf of the Bianchi family revealed the Frenchman was in a “critical but stable condition”.
The inquiry will be chaired by FIA safety commission president Peter Wright, and includes influential Formula One names such as former Ferrari and Mercedes chief Ross Brawn, two-time world champion Fittipaldi and ex-Ferrari team principle Stefano Domenicali.
