F1: Marussia to run just one car in Russia - report

Marussia Formula 1 team is going to run just one car at the maiden Russian Grand Prix this weekend, RMC announced Wednesday.

The French speaking RMC explained that mechanics, technicians and engineers who normally worked on Jules Bianchi’s car are still deeply shocked following the Frenchman’s nasty crash at Suzuka last Sunday in which he received life-threatening head injuries.

RMC explained that at first Marussia did not want to race at all in Sotchi.

After going it a serious thought, it was decided to run just one MR03-Ferrari for Briton Max Chilton.

Needless to say that Bianchi’s tub was completely destroyed in the accident.

Jules Bianchi remains in the Intensive Care Unit of the Mie General Medical Center in Yokkaichi. He has suffered a diffuse axonal injury* and is in a critical but stable condition.
