Deadly accident in F2 at Spa-Francorchamps


The F2 main race, held this weekend at Spa in support of F1, was interrupted in the second lap following a pileup that takes place just above the Raidillon.

At least three drivers have been involved: Marino Sato (Campos), Juan Manuel Correa (Junior Sauber), Anthoine Hubert (Arden). The impact was violent.

Sato went out of his car.

The accident took place on one of the fastest parts of the Belgian circuit, the Raidillon de l'Eau Rouge, where the track rises sharply after a descent.

The F2 is the last level of promotion formulas in motorsport before F1 and Hubert occupied before the Spa races the 8th place in the championship after 16 events.

In particular, he won two races this year, one in Monaco in May and the other in Le Castellet (France) in June, both competing on the sidelines of F1 Grand Prix.

Born in Lyon on September 22, 1996, Anthoine Hubert had been champion of France in F4 in 2013 and GP3 last year. He was also a development driver for Renault.

He ran in F2 for the British team BWT Arden.

Correa, born August 9, 1999, runs with a US license but was born in Ecuador. He is in 12th place in the F2 championship after having raced in 2017 and 2018 in GP3, another form of promotion.
