Mick Schumacher suffered an extremely scary crash during qualification for the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.
Schumacher, who's the son of legendary Formula 1 driver Michael Schumacher, endured a heavy hit at turn 12 - hitting the wall which badly damaged his vehicle.
Two tyres came loose as a result of the brutal crash, but reports say he's conscious and talking to the doctor.
Schumacher was racing in Q2 of Saturday's qualifying at the Jeddah street circuit and was travelling at a speed of around 170mph before his collision with the barriers.
The session was immediately red flagged.
