The Japanese Grand Prix did not prove to be a bed of roses for most of the drivers in Formula One presently. Williams’s driver Felipe Massa said that it was probably the worst race of his life. He is a veteran in the circuit and has come through the worse of accidents that happened to him in the qualifying round of the Hungarian Grand Prix of 2009. He had suffered a serious injury to his head and took a lot of time to recover. This time it was the turn of another fellow driver to meet with another accident. Jules Bianchi crashed against a recovery vehicle that had come to help out Adrian Sutil’s car which was stuck. Felipe Massa was vocal about the poor conditions from the very beginning. He was quite aware of the fact that it would prove to be very challenging for the drivers and a lot would be at stake. But his concerns were not paid enough heed before the race.
Formula One chief Eddie Jordan said that the decision to go on with the race was a just and unanimous one. The drivers however agreed that the conditions were quite tough. All of them seemed to be upset at the crash of the young driver and showed their concern towards his health. Felipe Massa also received a major jolt as he was reminded of his unfortunate incident earlier. According to him the recovery vehicle had taken some extra time to come down which led to the mishap. A typhon had hit the neighboring area of the Suzuka circuit which resulted in a wet track. The tyres skid quite easily and the drivers found it difficult to control their cars. The entire Formula One family has expressed concern over Bianchi’s condition much like Massa.
