Mick Schumacher’s high speed crash shocks F1 fans in Saudi Arabia



F1 driver Mick Schumacher has missed out on competing in the Saudi Grand Prix, following a high-speed crash in the qualifiers

Schumacher lost control of his car at 240KPH during the qualifying laps, crashing into a concrete wall in nightmare scenes. The Formula One driver was lifted out of his car and taken to the hospital in a conscious and stable condition.

The 23-year old shocked the grid with many champions in the F1 world taking to social media to wish him well. Despite the horrific crash, the FIA released a statement confirming that Schumacher had escaped the incident without any serious injuries.

His team Haas released a formal statement following the incident saying confirming he wouldn’t be competing in the 50-lap Saudi Arabia Grand Prix.

The son of world champion Michael Schumacher has been released from the hospital, reassuring his fans that he is “ok” with a post to his Twitter account.

Controversial Grand Prix

The Saudi Arabia Grand Prix has had its fair share of criticisms and concerns for its human rights history and most recently because of an explosion at a nearby oil depot.

The flames were visible from the Grand Prix tracks and caused widespread concerns during training days. The Houthi rebels in Yemen later claimed responsibility for the attack. The rebels are associated with military ties to Iran.

However, despite the concerns, Formula One confirmed the Grand Prix would go ahead as originally planned. The Grand Prix Drivers’ Association also released a statement reassuring competitors that it was safe to continue the race.

This comes as Max Verstappen wins the Saudi Grand Prix, coming out on top.

Verstappen raced against Charles Leclerc, only days after the round was nearly canceled in response to a nearby missile strike.

The winner’s Red Bull won by only half a second, crossing the line just ahead of the Ferrari.

In a recent financial report, Bank of America suggests that Disney’s ESPN could be on the verge of reaching a staggering $24 billion valuation. This eye-catching figure has sparked interest from potential buyers, with technology giants Apple and telecommunication leader Verizon being touted as likely contenders.
