Schumacher held out due to lingering crash effects
INDIANAPOLIS -- Ralf Schumacher will not race in the United States Grand Prix because of the lingering effects from an accident he had during one of the practice sessions. Ricardo Zonta will replace him in Sunday's event.
Schumacher wasn't seriously injured when a tire failed on his Toyota during Friday's second practice session at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The car spun coming out of the final turn and backed into a part of wall protected by the energy-absorbing SAFER Barrier.
