The Japanese Grand Prix was overshadowed by a big accident involving Jules Bianchi. The Marussia driver went off the track on lap 41 and crashed into a trackside vehicle which was in the run off area. As a result, the race was stopped on lap 45. Everybody in the Sauber F1 Team wishes Jules the best. Esteban Gutiérrez finished the race, which took place in wet conditions and was stopped twice, in 13th place, while Adrian Sutil crashed on lap 40.

Esteban Gutiérrez: "I think it was the right decision to stop the race. I really hope that Jules (Bianchi) will be ok. Regarding my race, I fought all the way from the beginning to the end. The conditions were very challenging and it was difficult to get into the rhythm straight away."

Adrian Sutil: "My thoughts are with Jules who went off in the same place as I did. Everything else is irrevelevant at this point in time. Everybody in the paddock should think of him, and I hope that he is in good hands. It was a difficult race in difficult conditions."

Monisha Kaltenborn, Team Principal: "All the members of the Sauber F1 Team are deeply concerned about the big accident involving Jules Bianchi. Our thoughts are with him, his family and his friends. Everybody in the team wishes him a speedy recovery. In light of this accident, the sporting aspects of the Japanese Grand Prix are in the least of our concerns."
