Pivato injury update 2.

Francois Duval's co-driver Patrick Pivato remains in a 'critical condition' in intensive care tonight [Saturday], the Stobart VK M-Sport Ford Rally Team has confirmed in its end of day two release.

Pivato suffered a fractured pelvis and fractured tibia on day 1 of the Rally Japan when he and Duval crashed out 4.8 kilometres into SS6 - the 11.10 kilometre-run through Yuparo 2.

During surgery to increase his chances of a speedy recovery, some internal bleeding was discovered and the Frenchman was swiftly re-operated on by surgeons at Higashi Tokushukai hospital.

"The latest news on the injuries of Patrick Pivato have come through this afternoon and he has now been in a stable condition for over six hours," confirmed the M-Sport-run outfit.

"Doctors are happy with his progress. However the Frenchman still remains in a critical condition in intensive care."
