Cartegena (Spain), Feb.12 (ANI): Seven-time Formula One champion Michael Schumacher was admitted to hospital overnight after crashing during super bike testing at a race track in the Spanish city of Cartagena.

The newspaper said Schumacher underwent a brain scan “which ruled out serious injuries despite the strong impact his head had against the ground.””
