Formula 1: Mick Schumacher talks about his horror crash
Mick Schumacher is back in the Formula 1 paddock just one day after his serious accident in qualifying for the Saudi Arabian GP. “I’m doing very well,” he says in an interview with Sky. “That shows how good the safety of the cars is. Being able to stand here after a crash like that is really nice.”
Remarkable: The Haas pilot has no pain whatsoever after his violent crash into the wall. “I have nothing and actually didn’t want to go to the hospital,” he reveals. “But that’s routine after a crash like this. Unfortunately, the radio was defective after the impact. That’s why I couldn’t speak to the team and tell them I’m fine. And I didn’t want to get out right away because I knew there were a few more cars coming.”
Schumi junior also remembers “everything” accordingly. “I was conscious the whole time.” He describes the course of the accident from his point of view as follows: “I had a small swerve and then landed on the curb. The rear wheels were hanging in the air and then it all happened very quickly.” He laughs his admission of guilt with a wink: “I was probably a bit too greedy and too fast for the tires at the moment.”
The fact that Schumacher has to skip the Saudi Arabian GP is not his fault. Mick: “We could drive from my side,” he emphasizes. “But we have to make sure that we keep our parts together so that we can drive in Melbourne.”
The German gets a new chassis for the next race. “I’m tinkering around with it a bit now to learn something again.”
