(CNN)Formula One driver Mick Schumacher said he was “OK” after he was transported to the hospital Saturday following a scary crash during the qualifying for theSaudi Arabian Grand Prix, according to a post from his Twitter account.

An initial assessment found he suffered no injuries but the 23-year-old driver was taken to a hospital for “precautionary checkups,” his team, Haas, said. The team later announced he was released and had returned to his hotel.

Schumacher, son of seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher, lost control of his car and crashed head-on at the exit of turn 12 during Q2 of qualifying at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit. Moments after the crash, the red flag was raised to allow the medical team to tend to the German driver.

The qualifying session was delayed for nearly an hour as marshals cleared the track of debris. Schumacher was shown on the broadcast sitting up on a stretcher and chatting as he was waiting to be loaded into the air ambulance.

Following the accident, the team announced Schumacher will not be participating in the Grand Prix, scheduled for Sunday, adding only one of its drivers, Kevin Magnussen, who qualified 10th for Sunday’s race, will participate.

“Kevin, having not done a lot of practice yesterday, I think he did a fantastic job today getting into Q3. His last run was not as planned but I think that was down to not having enough time on track. We’re still happy with Q3 and P10 tomorrow,” Haas team principal Guenther Steiner said in a statement.

Black smoke could be seen from the circuit and the blaze continued to rage on Saturday.

A statement from the Grand Prix Drivers’ Association read: “Yesterday was a difficult day for Formula One and a stressful day for us Formula One drivers.

“Perhaps it is hard to comprehend if you have never driven an F1 car on this fast and challenging Jeddah track, but on seeing the smoke from the incident it was difficult to remain a fully focused race driver and erase natural human concerns.

“Consequently we went into long discussions between ourselves, with our team principals, and with the most senior people who run our sport.
