Alexander Rossi says he thinks of Jules Bianchi and his family everyday following the Frenchman's serious accident in the Japanese Grand Prix.

Bianchi suffered serious head injuries in the incident at Suzuka in October, but last month there was some positive news, with confirmation he is no longer in an induced coma and is breathing unaided and was sufficiently well to be moved back to his native France. He remains unconscious, however, and in a critical condition, his family added in the last statement issued on November 19.

"Nearly two months on, Suzuka remains at the forefront of my mind," said Rossi in his end of season review.

"That Sunday, my perspective on everything widened and my focus became increasingly narrow.

"Jules Bianchi is my friend, competitor, and for a special time, he was my teammate [when I joined Marussia as the team's official test and reserve driver in the summer]. I think of him and his family each day and will continue to keep them in my thoughts and prayers."
