Luciano Burti, a former F1 driver and full-time pundit for Brazil's Globo, has bad news about the health of critically injured driver Jules Bianchi. Little has been heard about the stricken French driver for the past week, some 18 days after he fell unconscious when he struck a recovery vehicle during the Japanese grand prix.

Burti, a former F1 driver for Jaguar and Prost, told Sao Paulo radio Jovem Pan: "Talking with people who know his situation better, the chance of recovery is very small. If he survives, it seems that his chances of living without consequences are also very small," said Burti.

"It's very sad to hear, as Bianchi is a young, talented driver, I saw him all the time -- he was always together with Felipe Massa," he added. "Unfortunately, we know that Bianchi's chances are not very good, but it's a miracle that he did not die instantly. Everyone is very aware of that," said Burti. (GMM)
