Schumacher’s car was left in a mangled heap as he careered into the wall at the side of the track at 170mph, causing the session to be immediately red-flagged.
His momentum meant the car slid along the asphalt for some time before it eventually came to a halt.
Medics immediately rushed to attend to the stricken star and Schumacher stayed in his seat for some time as doctors treated him.
But the 23-year-old did manage to take his own gloves off as he was ushered into an ambulance after the horror collision.

As the car was lifted from the circuit it BROKE in two, highlighting the severity of the crash.
Thankfully Haas confirmed Schumacher appears to be physically fine after the sickening collision.
He is likely to be taken to hospital as a precaution, and has already spoken to his mum.
Fans and drivers alike were quick to express their concern after seeing the awful incident.
Lewis Hamilton said: “I heard the news. I hope he’s ok.”
Meanwhile one viewer wrote on social media: “Jeeez that was nasty. Hope Mick Schumacher is ok.”
While another added: “That was an absolutely awful crash. High-speed straight into concrete. I just hope Mick Schumacher is alright. Looks horrendous.”
Schumacher is the son of seven time world champion Michael and the nephew of former F1 driver, Ralf.
He was with his dad when Michael suffered serious head injuries in a skiing incident on December 29th 2013.
Mick has since explained that his dad was his “idol and role model” and revealed his pride at bringing the famous name back to F1.
