“I am really sorry”– Mick Schumacher suffers a 30G crash in Hungaroring during the FP3 on Saturday, a major setback before qualifying.
Things are anyway harsh for Haas, and now during the FP3 of the Hungarian Grand Prix, the German race driver Mick Schumacher suffered a 30G crash which immediately red flags.
Th2 22-year-old race driver emerged unharmed from his VF-21, but it leaves a major task for his crew to repair the car two hours before the qualifying.
A similar case his team suffered after his crash in Monaco this year. After completing the session, Haas revealed that the crash caused an impact of 30G, and Schumacher had been given the all-clear after a check-up at the medical centre.
Moreover, a gearbox change has been reported by Haas while the chassis remained unharmed, but Schumacher expressed his remorse after the crash and apologized on the team radio.
Mick: “I am really sorry for that. I know what it means…”

Watch Mick Schumacher’s 30G crash.
At turn 11, Schumacher appeared to lose control of his rear-end and went uncontrollably out of the track; though the gravel slowed his car’s pace immensely, the car suffered an immense impact.

During the publishing of this article, Haas announced that a gearbox change is underway, and they are still racing against the time to get the car on the track before the start of qualifying.
So, whether Schumacher would be present for the Q1 or has to settle himself with a P20 ahead of the main race on Sunday remains to be seen.
