The Bianchi family have released a new statement on the eve of the United States Grand Prix.
French Formula One driver Jules Bianchi remains in a “critical but stable” condition in hospital in Japan, his family said.
The Bianchi family thanked fans for their continued support, saying they felt the need to keep everyone updated despite their being “no new information to give”.
The statement was issued on the eve of opening practice of the United States Grand Prix, of which Marussia and fellow-struggler Caterham have withdrawn from.
“It will be four weeks this coming Sunday since Jules’ accident and he remains in the Mie General Medical Centre in Yokkaichi,” the statement said.
“His condition continues to be classified by the medical professionals here as critical but stable.
“Although we have no new information to give, we recognise that there are a huge number of people all around the world who are supporting Jules and willing him on in his fight.
“We owe it to his many fans to acknowledge the continued outpouring of messages, and to provide some information, however brief it may be.”
It concluded: “We will provide a further update when it is appropriate to do so. In the meantime, thank you to everyone who continues to keep Jules in their thoughts and prayers.”
