The Haas F1 team faces a steep repair bill after Mick Schumacher totalled his car during qualifying for this past weekend's Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.
Flying through Turn 10 at around 270km/h, Schumacher went too high on the curb and lost control, spinning into the nearby barrier. RaceFans.net reports that he sustained an incredible 33G in the crash. Miraculously, after a precautionary visit to the hospital, the 23-year-old walked away completely unscathed.
The same cannot be said for his obliterated Haas, though, as Team principal Guenther Steiner explained: "The chassis itself doesn't seem to be broken. The side impact structure is, but you can change them. Obviously, we need to do a proper check on the chassis, but it looks not too bad, to be honest.
"The engine also, I was told from Ferrari, seems to be okay. The battery pack as well. And then all the rest is broken. I think the cost is still pretty high because all the suspension is gone, except the front-left; I think there's still something on there. The rest is just like carbon powder.
"I don't know money-wise, but with these cars, between gearbox, the whole bodywork is gone, radiator ducts are gone, so it's between half a million and a million (dollars), I would say."
