In a bid to ensure the governing body's analysis is thorough, an Accident Panel has been created. Its members include Brawn, Domenicali, Emerson Fittipaldi and Wurz.

Led by Peter Wright, who is president of the FIA's Safety Commission, the panel will spend the next few weeks going over in detail the events leading up to Bianchi's crash as well as make recommendations aimed at ensuring that there can be no repeat of such incidents in the future.

A statement issued by the FIA said: "The group will carry out a full review of the accident to gain a better understanding of what happened, and will propose new measures to reinforce safety at circuits, with recommendations to be made for the FIA President."

The group will begin its work this week and a full presentation of its findings is due to be presented to the FIA's World Motor Sport Council on Dec. 3.

The full line-up of the Accident Panel:


Peter Wright, president of the Safety Commission


Ross Brawn, former team principal of Mercedes, Brawn Grand Prix and former technical director of Ferrari

Stefano Domenicali, former team principal of Ferrari

Gerd Ennser, chief stewards' representative
