I thought that they at least went to a yellow flag if removal equipment needed to access the circuit. Why was the race still going on with the removal vehicle in the run off area?

Boom.  Another win for Hamilton in the mildly moist.
Fantastic overtake to go past the cheat. Brave behind belief.

Jules Bianchi is having surgery on a severe head injury sustained after he crashed into a vehicle recovering Adrian Sutil's car during Sunday's Japanese Grand Prix.
The race was ended after the incident involving the Marussia driver, who failed to respond when his team radioed to ask if he was OK.
He was unconscious as he was driven to the Mie University Hospital, 10 miles away, with a police escort. The 25-year-old is now in surgery for the injuries and will be taken to intensive care afterwards, an FIA spokesman confirmed.
Officials red-flagged the Japanese Grand Prix on lap 47, meaning championship leader Lewis Hamilton claimed his third win in succession and eighth of the season.

Heard about this during the race and now I understand why they ended it early. Wish him well.

If you watch videos of the incident you can clearly see a marshall in the tower waving a green flag indicating all clear moments before the accident.  That needs investigating, coming around that corner and seeing a waved green means drivers are going to be back on the gas. 

Hope he's OK, sounds like a very serious head injury.

Where have you seen footage of Bianchi's crash.  I've only seen Sutil spinning off, where you can see the green flag.
There was an immediate black-out of the accident here, which, as the commentators said was a sign that it was really serious.

Sutil himself says the yellow flags were out when Bianchi spun off.

He'll be lucky to wake up from that.  The human body just isn't capable of withstanding those deceleration forces.

There's a picture that shows the car with leading side of the car pretty much destroyed and Bianchi's head slumped in the dock-put at a height that's level with the bottom of the tractor.

Hope to god I'm wrong, but it looks like the car's slid sideways across the grass and broadsided the tractor stopping almost dead.  The ground clearance of the tractor looks like most of the cockpit pod would have slid under the tractor.

I won't embed the picture, but it's here if you want to see for yourself

This doesn't show the crash but watch to the end, the marshal in the tower 10 yards from the incident is waving a green flag, so 1 car on the JCB and Bianchi's now embedded under it yards from a wet high speed corner and the marshal is waving a green?  That's not right.

This fan clip does show the Bianchi accident, my goodness if he survives that then I really don't know what to say.

DO NOT click on the link if you do not want to see the accident, but again the waved green flags are clearly visible throughout.

I'm guessing that footage filmed by fans is classed as F1 property if inside the arena. Shame.

It was pretty gruesome. The car goes underneath the back of the crane and lifts it up into the air. It is clear Bianchi is going to be in lots of trouble. Poor bloke.

I can understand that if it was general race footage but this is now a news story.

Blocking the video on 'rights' grounds seems very petty by F1

You're forgetting which petty dwarf runs F1.
