” Lewis Hamilton won a shortened Japanese Grand Prix, which ended with a red flag when Adrian Sutil and Jules Bianchi both crashed at Turn 7 in separate incidents.
The race started under a safety car due to wet weather conditions and after a brief red flag during the worst of the conditions, it started again on lap nine. Nico Rosberg led until Lewis Hamilton pulled a brave overtaking manoeuvre at Turn 1 on lap 29, which could prove critical for the championship. Rosberg went on to finish second ahead of strong drives from Sebastian Vettel in third and Daniel Ricciardo in fourth.
However, as rain intensified in the closing stages of the race, Adrian Sutil lost the rear of his Sauber at Turn 7 and crashed into the barriers. Double waved yellow flags were waved at the corner to warn drivers, but Bianchi also went off at the same point, although it was not shown on the TV world feed.
The safety car was deployed on lap 42 along with the medical car to tend to Bianchi. He was unconscious at the time and was taken to the local hospital by ambulance. The race was red flagged and ended after 44 laps.”
