Jules Bianchi's family give an update on the Marussia driver's condition, saying that he remains in a "critical but stable" condition.

The family of Jules Bianchi have revealed that the Formula 1 driver remains in a "critical but stable" condition four weeks after his collision at the Japanese Grand Prix.

The 25-year-old sustained a serious head injury when he hit a recovery vehicle during the Suzuka race.

A statement from Bianchi's family read: "It will be four weeks this coming Sunday since Jules's accident and he remains in the Mie General Medical Center in Yokkaichi. 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.

"Jules does indeed continue to fight. Although there have been some reports suggestive of plans for Jules's treatment, at this time his fight will continue here in Yokkaichi. We are taking things step by step. Once again, we would like to offer our sincere appreciation for the patience and understanding being shown towards our family at this very difficult time."

Marussia, who entered administration earlier this week, have since stated that they are "shocked and angered" by claims that the team ignored regulations in the build-up to the crash.
