Unfortunately, it is all beginning to sound very much like the Schumacher injury. How very sad and tragic.

Maybe now we can stop belittling the current drivers every chance we get? The "SISSIES" remark rings especially hollow in the light of current events. It's unfortunate that some people have been going out of their way to disrespect modern pilots for a long time now. Bianchi deserved respect before this incident as well.

Guys, I found the video of the crash and I'm shocked to see a green flag being waved. This is gonna be disastrous for the FIA

It's frankly incredible he survived that crash. It's kind of an all or nothing kind of accident. His head must have glanced the recovery vehicle rather than a full-on hit I'd have thought. Poor guy.

The Green flag marks the end of the yellow flag zone, after which (and not before) the drivers can go back to full speed again. The marshal's post happens to be very close to (but still after) the incident but the green flag isn't being waved in error.

Apparently Jules is not breathing unassisted as was reported in previous earlier reports :(

It's strange as reports seemed to suggest he was breathing unassisted even just after the crash and I guess they would've had to get breathing apparatus to him within a couple of minutes or so if not. It does appear some reports were just plain wrong though.

Sounds bloody awful. I just read on the Marussia Facebook page that Ferrari have flown in their own brain trauma specialist from Rome so he appears to be getting good treatment but if the injury is that bad the greatest specialist in the World won't make it better.

I'd seen that; we don't really know anything more than what we knew before. He has a head injury, and it is not isolated to a single area. However, there are major DAIs and minor DAIs (a concussion is a minor DAI).

Also, remember that following the 2009 Hungarian GP, Massa's condition was initially described as "Life-threatening, but stable"; this is very similar in terms of description to Bianchi's. We can only hope that a similar outcome is achieved.
