Mick Schumacher explains the accident with a 10 cm error, and cyclists are scared | they comment on formula 1

This Sunday’s tumultuous F1 Monaco Grand Prix tested the hearts of the public and some drivers with a violent crash by Mick Schumacher against the protective fence at the exit of the Pool Curve. In the 27th lap, the red flag accident halved 23-year-old German Haas. He was not harmed, and justified his miscalculation of the bid space.

– I’m fine physically, but of course it’s annoying. The conditions were very difficult. The cars are wider than last year and that’s why I misjudged them. It was totally weird. When I saw it in the playback, I was 10 inches from the track. This slipped the rear wheels, and the rear was broken. Then I tried to steer but I slipped to the left, ”the pilot explained.

The offer took some time to show up, which caused tension as a result of the delay. However, the driver of the American team did not need much time to communicate with the group on the radio and managed to leave what was left of the car on his own. He was taken to the Monte-Carlo Circuit Medical Center and released the same day.

With the accident on lap 28, the direction of the race flashed yellow flags and a virtual safety car. Two laps later, the race was stopped with a red flag for removing the car from the stretch and clearing the track, as well as restoring the barrier.

The race, which is valid for the seventh stage of the tournament, started an hour late due to a sudden and heavy rain in the region. The track dried up a lot and it took more than 20 laps to get all the drivers to move from heavy rain tires to intermediate compounds before they landed.

For Haas, it was a day to forget Monaco Sunday. On lap 19 before Schumacher’s accident, Kevin Magnussen retired with power unit problems.

– It was a disappointing day for us. Kevin was very fast, we hoped to overtake Bottas with a pit stop. Unfortunately, he had a water leak. And of course, as for Micki, it’s not good to see another big accident, but we have to look ahead now. ”

This was not Schumacher’s first serious incident in the 2022 season. In the second stage of the year, at the Saudi Grand Prix, the German fell in the standings.

His car was destroyed and removed from a single seat, split in half, by medical staff from the International Automobile Federation (FIA). The pilot was consciously taken to King Fahad Military Hospital and was in contact with his mother, Corinna, Michael Schumacher’s seven-time champion wife, but was discharged from the clinic, which was ruled out of Sunday’s race.

The former rival of the father of the 2020 Formula 1 champion, Fernando Alonso, did not hide his fear of the accident, but tried to explain why Schumacher’s car broke down, a shocking scene before initially confirming the health status of the Germans.

– I remember Jeddah; the car broke down in the middle and the box was no longer in the chassis, and it has been so today. Luckily he was fine, but it was a very bad accident. I hope to learn something from this. But it has nothing to do with the car, it’s how hard you hit it. These cars are very heavy, weighing over 800 pounds, so the inertia you hit on the wall is much higher than before – commented the two-time Alpine champion.

Michael Vettel, a fan of Michael, as well as a friend and guardian of young Mick, came out in defense of the driver who has not yet scored a goal for Nicholas Latifi (Williams) this season:

– I was glad to hear on the radio that I was fine before I got to where I was. It’s easy to get it wrong so quickly. I don’t know exactly what happened to him, I didn’t see him, but the main thing is that he’s fine. There is no doubt that he is capable of doing much more than what he is showing today. But you have to give it some time.

Pierre Gasly also pointed out that the direction of the race was waiting for three laps to stop the race, and gave his point of view on the accident:

It was amazing to see the gearbox completely out of the car. It took a while to raise the red flag, but it was the right thing to do. I was a little surprised that we had a virtual security car and not a real one, but I have to review the race, it was very long and a lot happened.
