Grand Prix Drivers' Association chairman Alex Wurz has warned against jumping to conclusions over Jules Bianchi's accident in Formula 1's Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka.
The Marussia driver remains in intensive care after suffering a severe head injury in Sunday's race.
But while Wurz and the GPDA want to learn the lessons of the accident as soon as possible, he stresses the need to follow the proper investigative process.
"Obviously, such a terrible accident throws up a lot of questions and opinions," said Wurz.
"By nature, we all like to have answers, conclusions and solutions as soon as possible.
"All of us drivers understand and also feel the need to investigate and discuss this matter.
"But we shall not jump to conclusions without having all evidence and information, and also having the chance to hear other parties' point of view."
Wurz has also warned that F1 drivers should not discuss the accident in public while it is still being understood.
"We would rather not debate this accident until we have all information collected.
"Most certainly, I recommend to all the drivers to refrain from a public discussion.
"Any such discussions and the pursuit of solutions shall be done in a closed circle to ensure respect and privacy for Jules's family, but equally to ensure this analytical process can be done in its best way.
"We need to give the experts time to analyse everything and, of course, we offer our full support to whichever authorities may be involved in this process.
"But foremost, we want to support the family and friends of Jules.
"We do this in the best way, not by inflaming knee-jerk conclusions.
"Our thoughts are with Jules and his family."
