CHASSIS DAMAGE TO JULES BIANCHI’S MR02-02 RACE CAR

As a consequence of Jules Bianchi’s accident in this morning’s Free Practice 1 session, his allocated chassis MR02-02 has sustained damage that is repairable but not in sufficient time for him to take part in Free Practice 2. Jules will therefore sit out this afternoon’s session.

The spare chassis will be built up in time for Jules to resume running in Free Practice 3 on Saturday morning.
