Schumacher, son of seven-time world champion Michael, lost control and crashed into a wall during Q2 on the Jeddah Corniche Circuit.

Schumacher’s car was left in a mangled heap when it crashed into the trackside wall, resulting in the session being immediately red flagged.

The Jeddah Corniche Circuit is characterized by long straights, few run-off areas and concrete walls.

Throughout Saturday, the track action was frequently interrupted due to accidents.

But none is more spectacular than Schuamcher’s, the Son of the seven-time world championMichael.

Mick, who turned 23 this week, plowed into the wall at around 170 mph, destroying his Haas car.

Paramedics were immediately dispatched along with the ambulance, and after he was pulled from the rubble, he was taken to the medical center for an evaluation and taken on a gurney to a waiting medical helicopter.

Wrapped in a green blanket, he was taken to the King Fahad Armed Forces Hospital in Jeddah for precautionary checks.

His Haas team confirmed the German was conscious and had called his mother Corinna to let her know he was fine but would not be competing in Sunday’s race.

Haas boss Günther Steiner said: “I spoke to his mother and kept her informed.

“He has no injuries that can be seen but they want to do some scans to make sure there was no force impact.

“The impact shattered the digital [technology] so we haven’t heard anything [on the radio] but we have learned that he was conscious.”

Its momentum from the high-speed impact caused the car to skid on the tarmac for some time before finally coming to a stop.
