Schumacher's son breaks hand in crash

Michael Schumacher's son ended his second weekend as a single seater race driver in hospital.

Amid intense scrutiny and global media interest, the 16-year-old German won a race on his Formula 4 debut in April.

But round two of the German junior series was much more difficult for the son of a F1 legend, as he qualified down the field and crashed.

And the second race of the weekend at Austria's Red Bull Ring also ended with a crash for young Schumacher, as he was nudged from behind into the pitwall by a rival.

German media reports say an "uncomplicated fracture" in his right hand was diagnosed in hospital.
