But at his hair, "extremely many" parts have broken, the 23-year-old reported. It is therefore to handle damage limitation to sit in a usable car in two weeks in Melbourne.

Schumacher was dressed on Saturday in the second passage of the starting seat hunt on the ultrafast city course in Jidda at high speed sideways in the distance border. The car was thrown across the track, lost two wheels and then came up severe damaged to a standstill.
Schumacher was later examined in the hospital. Aftercutology, it was fed into King Fahad Armed Forces Hospital in Jedda for caution with a helicopter for further tests. "Probably it was a bit more dramatic for the people than for me," said Schumacher, who wanted to "rumble" at the race Sunday with his team on the car.
