Mick Schumacher states that he was ready to participate in the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

Schumacher would miss the race in Jeddah after a heavy crash in qualifying. The German was not injured, but Haas decided building a new car for the Saudi Arabian GP could hurt his chances at the Australian GP.

Schumacher spoke about his readiness to race on Sunday.

“Yeah, I’m for sure ready, or I would be ready to go racing,” he said.

“It’s just component management, car parts in general, we have to see and look after that we are surely able to race in Melbourne.

“I knew that it’s race two, spare parts are usually quite difficult at this time of year. So I kind of figured that might be difficult, but nonetheless, I was hoping for a race today.”

Schumacher was not moving much in the cockpit right after the shunt, but he assured that he was fine.

“I was 100%. It was mainly frustration, and me being annoyed by the fact that this happened, and obviously just reflecting on what I’d just gone through, and what I could have done better.

“I think that I just wanted to make sure before I started moving erratically around that everything is fine. And obviously, all the marshals and also the doctors came by and made sure that I was all fine.

“It was a big one. From what I heard, we were like around 270 km/h when I did hit that wall. I think in a road car, that wouldn’t look quite well. But I mean, luckily, the cars are so safe these days that I was able to walk away from it and stand here with no issues.

“Let’s say it like this, once I lost the rear, I knew what was coming. So I could prepare for it.”
