The 23-year-old German pilot MICK SCHUMACHER lost control of his Haas car on lap 27 of the Monte Carlo race during the Monaco Grand Prix on the entry to the Swimming Pool shunting the car into the wall. This was a monster crash. His car broke in half. Schumacher walked away from the incident without any serious injuries. “I am OK,” he said. “I just don’t understand it.”“Yeah, it felt super weird,” he also said after the incident. Schumacher’s team Haas confirmed that he was OK with a short tweet. The incident was Schumacher’s second high-speed crash of the season after he also suffered a big one in Saudi Arabia. This time, Mick Schumacher says a “10 centimeter” error caused his huge crash. Race control decided to red flag the race three laps later when it became clear repairs to the dislodged barriers would be required.
Schumacher, son of legendary F1 driver Michael, is yet to register a point after 27 race starts. More problem for Haas as minutes before the accident, Magnussen retired his car with a hydraulics issue and now both the Haas cars are out of the race. Moreover, Haas will take zero points out of this race. Haas team principal Guenther Steiner said: “It was a disappointing day today.” Monaco is notorious for its narrow circuit and high likelihood of producing barrier crashes.
