Maybe, but this was a TYPHOON that was bearing down on them, and they knew far in advance that it would arrive on Sunday, which is why the FIA offered to have the race run on Saturday or even earlier in the day, and Honda refused.

If Bianchi dies, IMO, it's on Honda's head.

Race control have it on their heads as well. If the conditions are getting worse, one driver has crashed & all but 3 others are on intermediates instead of full wets, then they should've thrown the safety car for Sutil, not waited 2 laps until those horrific crash

Looking at that wreck, I'm just glad he's still among us right now.

That wreck was hard to watch. I just hope Jules Bianchi is doing alright.

According to a statement just released by Bianchi's family, he is in critical but stable condition in the ICU. He has suffered a diffuse axonal injury.

Reading from ex-F1 doctor Gary Hartstein, the injury is really quite bad.
