The 15-year-old joined Dutch outfit Van Amersfoort Racing just last month and had the incident during testing at the Lausitzring circuit in the German city of Brandenburg.
According to The Times, Schumacher walked from his car unharmed after spinning into a gravel trap.
The son of the seven-times Formula One world champion finished runner-up in the world, European and German karting championships, prompting Van Amersfoort to sign the youngster for the 2015 German F4 championship.
Formula 4 is seen as a stepping stone to Formula 1, with the top drivers from the series expected to graduate to either GP3 or Renault World Series.
“We all need to understand that he is only just beginning his career and still has a lot to learn,” team principle Frits van Amersfoort is quoted as saying by Die Welt.
“The good thing is that he wants to learn.”
Michael Schumacher currently remains in his home in Switzerland as he continues his recovery from a ski accident that left him in an induced coma for six months.
