"The Williams F1 Team would like to thank all of the teams and the FIA for their support in this incident," said the team. The Force India team's deputy team chief Bob Fearnley criticised the circuit staff for being too slow to react.

He said: "There's no training, no procedures. I went down to see how my man is, and I had to fight my way in -- We need to look seriously at the training of people at the circuits. I'm not impressed at all."
