Anthoine Hubert Dies During Belgian GP

September 4, 2019 by

French driver Anthoine Hubert was killed at the Belgian Grand Prix in a Formula Two accident. The 22-year-old died on the Spa-Francorchamps high-speed track after a 160 mph crash. Hubert ran for the British-owned Arden group, established and managed by Red Bull group boss Christian Horner’s dad, Garry Horner. The second-lap crash at the end of the fearsome Eau Rouge corner involved a number of riders, and the official television feed cut off the scene quickly, and would not show any crash replays.

But footage of the event that subsequently appeared on social media showed Hubert slamming through the obstacles on the far side of the circuit before slipping across the field. After that, Ecuadorian-American Juan Manuel Correa crashed head-on into Hubert, whose vehicle seemed to split in two. Emergency and medical teams arrived instantly, and all involved drivers were taken to the medical centre. Correa is noted to have been transferred to Liege Hospital and is in a stable condition.

The Formula Two race, which serves as the Formula One feeder competition, accompanied the end of qualification for the F1 Grand Prix that saw Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc reach pole position ahead of Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton. A declaration issued by the governing body of the sport, the FIA, reads: The Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) regrets that a severe event concerning teams #12, #19 and #20 happened at 17:07 on 31/08/19 as portion of the FIA Formula 2 Sprint Race in Spa-Francorchamps, round 17 of the season.
