Adrian Sutil questions lack of safety car

Sauber's Adrian Sutil questions whether the safety car should have been brought out sooner ahead of the crash involving Jules Bianchi at the Japanese Grand Prix.

Adrian Sutil has questioned whether the safety car should have been deployed ahead of Jules Bianchi's crash in the Japanese Grand Prix this morning.

Bianchi is understood to have collided with a recovery vehicle under waved yellow flags after the German's Sauber ran wide at the same corner a few moments earlier.

Sutil told Sky Sports News: "The yellow flags were out after I aquaplaned at the corner as the rain got more and more and one lap later with waved yellow flags Jules came around and had the same spin there. It was more or less the same crash, but just the outcome was a bit different.

"The car came out to rescue my car and then it all happened. With respect to this corner I think everyone knows this is one of the most tricky corners and when it is getting late and the rain increases, let's say when you have an accident there you should probably think about a safety car."

The FIA has confirmed that the Marussia driver was not conscious as he was transferred to a local hospital.
