Still reeling over the crash of Jules Bianchi, who remains critical in a Japanese hospital, the race in Sochi was held last weekend.

The Marussia team prepared Jules’ car and didn’t let backup driver Alexander Rossi drive it. Jules’ car sat unused in the garage. Unfortunately, his teammate retired early in the race.

A pre-race moment of silence was held with all of the drivers to think of Jules. It seemed that most of the drivers wished that there had been more time between the races, as there normally is. Back-to-back race weekends are not the norm.

Lewis Hamilton won the race, which, sadly, was not that exciting. Long tracks are great, but it lets everyone get so split up that there isn’t much wheel-to-wheel activity. Nico had issues on lap 1 and ended up having to work his way through the pack, and finished on the podium as well. The Mercedes team locked down the constructors’ championship for 2014, for the first time in their history.

The Marussia team released a statement about Jules Bianchi’s condition.

There are a few weeks off now before the United States Grand Prix in Austin.
