Michael Schumacher only ran for 67 seconds at the F1 qualifying in Spa. He said that it was a bizarre accident. His right rear wheel was detached at the start of the Q1. Thus, he starts at 24th place, his worst grid position ever.

“At first, I wasn’t sure what had happened, as I just felt myself lose the back end suddenly which is why I instantly apologized to the team. But then I saw the wheel off the car and understood the reason why I had lost control,” he said. According to GP Update’s website, he also said that he would have wished that this did not happen, meanwhile, he added, “Seriously, this is certainly something that should not occur, but then this is also Formula 1. We are working at the highest level but still things can happen.”

Schumacher though is undeterred, he is still looking at this situation positively as he said that, “Trying to find the good in the bad, I’d probably say that I still have some fresh sets of tyres left, and that there is only one direction to go tomorrow- forward.”
