Jules Bianchi was missing on Thursday; Sergio Perez was spotted in the paddock icing his knee.

Mar.28 (GMM) Jules Bianchi was missing in action at Sepang on Thursday.

Marussia let the Frenchman avoid the Malaysian heat by staying in his hotel, after calling in sick with a throat infection and fever, French television BFMTV and the sports daily L'Equipe reported.

Bianchi was, however, well enough to practice on Friday morning, completing 18 laps.

Meanwhile, Germany's Auto Motor und Sport reported that Force India driver Sergio Perez was spotted in the paddock icing his knee.

The Mexican had surgery over the winter, but Perez told correspondent Tobias Bruner he simply tweaked the knee whilst training, adding that it is "not a big issue".
