Father: Critically injured F1 driver Jules Bianchi is now ‘stable,’ back in his native France


Critically injured Formula One driver Jules Bianchi is back in his native France to continue recovery from his vicious wreck at Suzuka, Japan over two months ago.

According to PaddolkTalk.com, Philippe Bianchi issued a statement Monday that his 25-year-old son remains in “stable” condition, even though Jules has been described as being unconscious and in critical condition after ramming into a track safety vehicle during the annual F1 visit to Suzuka.

“Jules is still stable,” Bianchi’s father told Var Matin newspaper. “It takes time and patience, and when there is real progress, we will tell.”

Philippe Bianchi also said that people in Nice, which is closest to the family home, have respected the family’s wishes for peace and privacy as young Jules continues to recover.

“As Jules is strong, we try to be strong, too,” Philippe Bianchi said. “We manage as best we can. We are at his bedside, we will not give up and we are trying to give him all the energy we have.”
