Jules Bianchi didn't slow down sufficiently before crash - FIA report

<p>An <span class="caps">FIA</span> accident report has found that Marussia driver Jules Bianchi failed to slow down sufficiently under warning flags to avoid a crash that left him with severe head injuries.</p> <p>The 25-year old Frenchman crashed into a recovery vehicle at 126 kilometres an hour in wet conditions at Japanese Grand Prix in October.</p> <p>He was initially taken to a nearby hospital where he was placed in an artificial coma.</p> <p>His condition improved mid-November to the point where he was able to breath unaided and taken out of the coma.</p> <p>He was subsequently flown to an intensive care in Nice where he remains unconscious.</p> <p>His team Marussia have since ceased trading after failing to find funding for next season.</p>
