GP Week : Issue 212
Formula 1 paused before the start of sunday's Russian Grand Prix in a show of support for Jules Bianchi. Bernie Ecclestone, Jean Todt, and Dmitry Kozak (Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation) were among dignitaries, along with F1 drivers, who showed their support for the Marussia driver who, according to his family, remains in a critical but stable condition following his Japanese Grand Prix crash a week ago. Post-race, senior driver Jenson But ton summed up the emotions affecting the grid over the weekend: "Before the race and after the race, the national anthems, it's horrific, but when you put on the helmet and get in the car and you are racing it is a nice place to be because you are in another world," he said. "On the grid was emotional for ever yone and we, the drivers, had our time together. We were there for Jules. Then get ting back into the car was the trickiest bit. " Ever y driver feels the same pain but when we get into the car and close our visors we get on with it. It is good we drive our hearts out. "D ifferent things go through your head and you have your emotional moments. For us drivers, we weren't thinking about the national anthem, we were thinking about Jules."
