Marussia has asked for patience with regards to updates on the condition of Jules Bianchi, who suffered a severe head injury in Sunday's Japanese Grand Prix.

Bianchi struck a recovery vehicle in the accident and was taken to Mie General Hospital, where he underwent surgery for a severe head injury.

There have been no official updates since the FIA's second communication on Sunday.

"Following the accident involving Jules Bianchi during yesterday’s 2014 Formula One Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka Circuit, the Marussia F1 Team would like to acknowledge the huge outpouring of support and affection for Jules and the team at this very difficult time," read a statement from the squad.

"With regard to the communication of information concerning Jules’ medical condition, we will respect, and be guided by, the wishes of the Bianchi family. Together with Jules’ care, they will remain our highest priority.

"Therefore, we would ask for patience and understanding with regard to further medical updates, which will be communicated in conjunction with the Mie General Medical Center in Yokkaichi, where Jules is being treated, when they feel it is appropriate.

"Representatives of the Marussia F1 Team and Scuderia Ferrari will remain at the hospital to support Jules and the Bianchi family."
