It’s been a bad few days for Michael Schumacher. The Formula One legend was thought to have crashed a Ferrari at the Nurburgring, though Ferrari maintains that it was a test driver, and now he has been involved in an accident in the UK.
Reports state that Schumacher was driving a Fiat van to Lydd airport in Kent on his way back from the Silverstone Classic race meeting, when he collided with a garage door while overtaking another car. Martin Kingham was shutting the door at the time, and was thrown onto the bonnet of a nearby vehicle by the impact.
Kingham claims that Schumacher then got out of the van and accused him of being in the wrong. The police were called, and the seven-times F1 champion was given a breath test, which proved negative, before he exchanged insurance details and continued on his way.
Schumacher’s agent Sabine Kehm told the press, “There was a collision but nobody was injured. Michael cooperated with police. There is nothing else we wish to say."
