Race ended early after accident involving the two drivers.
A crash involving Jules Bianchi and Adrian Sutil saw the Japanese Grand Prix ended early and the former left unconscious and taken to hospital, reports the Indepenent.
There had been doubts ahead of the race due to the impact of Typhoon Phanfone and the drivers started behind a safety car before oragnisers called a red flag and everything was stopped.
Things resumed 20 minutes later however, although conditions remained treacherous and Sauber driver Sutil crashed on turn seven to see the introduction of another safety car.
Yet there was confusion at the scene and it quickly transpired that Marussia’s Bianchi had also been involved in the accident and the sight of a heavy goods digger on the track suggested things had taken a turn for the worse.
The Frenchman was taken to the medical centre and the race was immediately red flagged once again with no new restart time, meaning Mercedes star Lewis Hamilton won ahead of teammate Nico Rosberg.
However, other events overshadowed the Englishman’s triumph and it was later confirmed that Bianchi collided with the recovery vehicle attending to Sutil.
The Marussia team sent out the warning after the driver failed to respond over the radio to confirm that he was OK and he was later taken to hospital via car – as weather conditions were too dangerous for a helicopter to take off.
As yet no there is no further news on Bianchi’s condition.
