Michael SchumacherSeven-time Formula 1 world champion Michael Schumacher had on Wednesday a motorcycle accident during a test session at a Spanish race track near the city of Cartagena. The German, who is currently preparing for the German Superbike Championship, fell from his Honda motorcycle and hit his head violently on the ground.

He was taken to the Virgen de Arrixaca Hospital in the city of Murcia where doctors visited him reporting that ‘he didn’t suffer serious injuries except pain in the neck and his right wrist, but these had not hindered his mobility and did not appear serious.’

“Today I had an accident at the biking tests in Cartagena, and to be safe I went to a hospital,” said Schumacher through his official website. “I was driving down start-finish and when breaking into the first corner I hit some bumps which made me fall. The checks in the hospital showed nothing and I am fine.”
