Despite qualifying ahead of Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton, Schumacher will play no part in tomorrow's Saudi Arabian GP, with Haas having already withdrawn both the driver and his car from the event. Schumacher will now have two weeks to prepare for the Australian GP, which is set to take place from 8-10 April. Kevin Magnussen will race as the only Haas driver on track on Sunday.
