The following statement is provided by the family of Jules Bianchi, in conjunction with the Mie General Medical Center, and is distributed on their behalf by the Marussia F1 Team.

“This is a very difficult time for our family, but the messages of support and affection for Jules from all over the world have been a source of great comfort to us. We would like to express our sincere appreciation.
Jules remains in the Intensive Care Unit of the Mie General Medical Center in Yokkaichi. He has suffered a diffuse axonal injury and is in a critical but stable condition. The medical professionals at the hospital are providing the very best treatment and care and we are grateful for everything they have done for Jules since his accident.

We are also grateful for the presence of Professor Gerard Saillant, President of the FIA Medical Commission, and Professor Alessandro Frati, Neurosurgeon of the University of Rome La Sapienza, who has travelled to Japan at the request of Scuderia Ferrari. They arrived at the hospital today and met with the medical personnel responsible for Jules’ treatment, in order to be fully informed of his clinical status so that they are able to advise the family. Professors Saillant and Frati acknowledge the excellent care being provided by the Mie General Medical Center and would like to thank their Japanese colleagues.

The hospital will continue to monitor and treat Jules and further medical updates will be provided when appropriate.”

I think Richard Hammond had a similar injury and has made a good recovery. I know that DAI can have different levels of severity but it sounds like Jules is in the best hands and goes on to make a full recovery.

This is simply awful – poor fellow and my family’s sympathies go out to his family. A horrible time. Been there, very traumatic.

Just did some quick research, really hope he’s on the mild-moderate end of the spectrum… Best wishes Jules!

With Gods Help Jules Bianci will have a full recovery, think back at Poor Felipe Massa and his terrible head injury, how his comeback has been successful and his driving all the better.
