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.

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.

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.

The official said the lives of Raisi and Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian were “at risk following the helicopter crash”, which happened on the way back from a visit to the border with Azerbaijan in Iran’s northwest.

State TV quoted an official as saying at least one passenger and one crew member had been in contact with rescuers. It also said the helicopter had been found, though Iran’s Red Crescent denied this report.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who holds ultimate power with a final say on foreign policy and Iran’s nuclear programme, sought to reassure Iranians, saying there would be no disruption to state affairs. #iran #trending

Published

Australia’s multimillion-dollar campaign to attract Hollywood productions to its shores appears to be paying off.

The allure of Australia lies not only in its picturesque locations but also in its competitive financial incentives.
