• Marussia driver has been in coma since accident at 2014 Japanese Grand Prix
• His father Philippe says waiting for signs of progress has become ‘daily torture’
Jules Bianchi’s father is becoming “less optimistic” that the former Marussia Formula One driver will recover from life-threatening head injuries he suffered during last October’s Japanese Grand Prix, when his car slid off the track in wet conditions and struck a recovery vehicle attending a previous crash.
The 25-year-old Frenchman was left in a coma and his father has spoken of the “daily torture” of waiting for signs of progress. “It’s impossible,” Philippe Bianchi told radio station France Info.
