The images of the accident are terrible. Everything happened that Saturday afternoon in a Formula 2 race on the sidelines of the Formula One Grand Prix. A pileup involving three drivers occurred at the start of the second lap, at high speed.
Juan Manuel Correa of the United States suffers from leg fractures and Giuliano Alesi of France is unharmed. The Frenchman Anthoine Hubert is unfortunately dead. His car was cut in half in the violent crash. The relief quickly intervened while the race was interrupted.
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 explains Le Figaro.
Anthoine Hubert won two races this year, one in Monaco in May and the other in Castellet (France).
