Lap 10 of the inaugural Saudi Arabian Grand Prix saw Haas driver Mick Schumacher crash heavily into the wall at Turn 23, causing extensive damage to his VF-21.

    In a crash similar to Charles Leclerc’s Free Practice 2 shunt on Friday evening, Schumacher lost the back end of his Haas going through Turn 22, before slewing heavily into the Turn 23 barriers – with Schumacher apologising to his team for the error before climbing out of the car unaided.

    The incident brought out a Safety Car, with Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas diving into the pits from P1 and P2, as Max Verstappen took over the lead – a move which played into Verstappen’s hands a few laps later when the race was red-flagged, with Verstappen allowed to change onto new tyres before the race restart under the regulations.
