Michael Schumacher has escaped uninjured from a fall during German Superbike testing at Cartagena.

The seven-time Formula One champion was testing his Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade when the incident happened, with team boss Jens Holzhauer quoted in the German press as referring to it as 'a harmless slip and a quite normal training fall'.

Despite that, Schumacher was taken to nearby hospital as a precaution. Treated for neck and wrist injuries, Schumacher was nonetheless allowed home after undergoing medical checks.

"I had an accident at the biking tests in Cartagena, and to be safe I went to a hospital," he said in a statement. "I was driving down start-finish and when breaking into the first corner I hit some bumps which made me fall.

"The checks in the hospital showed nothing and I am fine, therefore I went back home at the evening."
