Unwell Bianchi pulls out of second practice
5 July 2013 – Marussia driver Jules Bianchi has pulled out of second practice for the German Grand Prix at the Nürburgring, with the Frenchman suffering from a stomach upset.
After reserve driver Rodolfo González made his third opening practice appearance of the season this morning, Bianchi attempted to gather his first mileage in FP2, but he quickly expressed discomfort, with the team ultimately deciding to end his day early.
"We have concluded Jules' programme for today as he is feeling a little under the weather with a slight stomach upset," said Marussia via Twitter. "Better for him to rest."
Bianchi completed 10 laps before pulling into the pit lane and ending his session.
