The FIA is set to meet with the F1 teams to discuss the events of the Japanese Grand Prix and to attempt to find a way of controlling speeds in yellow flag conditions.

Jules Bianchi remains in a critical but stable condition in hospital after going off-track in a double waved yellow flag zone at Suzuka and hitting a recovery tractor. Race director Charlie Whiting has already prepared an initial report for FIA president Jean Todt and said the next step is a meeting with all the teams in Russia on Saturday to try and finalise a way of restricting speeds in such situations in future.

"I think there are some things to learn, and we want to engage with all the teams and the drivers to make sure that we come up with good, sound and well thought through ideas," Whiting said. "I think one of the most important things for us to learn here is that it's probably better to take the decision to slow down away from the drivers.

"It's probably better to put in a system where it's much clearer to everybody how much we think cars should slow down under similar circumstances, and that's what we're working on. Starting tomorrow morning in fact we're meeting with all the teams to discuss exactly that; a way of trying to impose - for want of a better expression - a speed limit. It probably won't be a speed limit as such but there will be, I believe, a way of controlling the speed with complete certainty and complete clarity."

Having shown footage that displayed Bianchi losing the rear of his Marussia and then overcorrecting before sliding off track, Whiting said the data showed he did slow prior to the incident, but conceded there was a variance between all the drivers in how they reacted to the double waved yellow flags.

"I know what speed he left the track at. We have seen the data from all the cars. A lot of cars came through the double waved yellow sector, there were some that didn't slow down much and there were some that slowed down a lot. I don't think that we need to go in to the actual detail of exactly how much he slowed down relative to others.

"Suffice to say we do have that data, he did slow down, it's a matter of degree and that's where we are at the moment."
