This year’s Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix was marked not only by Sergio Perez’s sensational victory and a heavy downpour but also by Mick Schumacher’s serious accident. Because of her, the race even had to be stopped for a while, according to the official website of Formula 1.
The accident took place after the rain when the track had not yet had time to dry out. Michael Schumacher’s son lost control of the car literally out of the blue. The car skidded in a straight line, and it flew into the barrier.
From the impact, the Haas car was actually torn into two parts. Mick Schumacher miraculously did not receive any damage and got out of the wrecked car on his own. The driver later admitted that he was very upset because he had a good pace and had every chance to finish in points.
But team director Gunther Steiner is even more dissatisfied with the ridiculous accident, because the new car will cost several million dollars, and the budget of the American team is not very large. In addition, for Mick Schumacher, this is the second major accident of the season: he also crashed a car at the Saudi Grand Prix and spent $2.1 million on its restoration.
“You saw perfectly well what happened. There is nothing good in the fact that our car is badly broken again. Let’s see how much this accident will cost us,” Gunther Steiner said.
