Haas driver Mick Schumacher has confirmed that he is feeling "ok" following a scary accident that resulted in him being airlifted to a local Jeddah hospital.

Schumacher crashed hard during qualifying for the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix at a high-speed section of the Corniche Circuit.

The incident left him requiring removal from his car by the medical team, before being loaded into the back of an ambulance and taken to the Medical Centre.

From there, Schumacher was flown to a nearby hospital to undergo further checks, but he has now been released.

Kevin Magnussen will race as the only Haas driver on track on Sunday.
