F2 Spa-Francorchamps: Horror crash in saturdays Feature race took the life of Anthoine Hubert.

Anthoine Hubert, 22-year-old  (BWT Arden) driver died on the Spa-Francorchamps circuit on Saturday, after he hit the protective wall on the right side of the circuit at the Radillon exit, bounced of after which Juan Manuel Correa (Sauber Junior Team by Charouz) could not avoid running into Hubert’s car at nearly full speed. Hubert was immediately transported to the hospital, where he lost his life due to the serious injuries he sustained from the heavy impact.

Lewis Hamilton, who saw the accident during an interview, had a reaction that I could not describe, and I say that from a good point of view. Check out the material here:

Also, not only him, but many Formula 1 drivers, such as George Russell and Charles Leclerc, who competed against him in the recent past, paid tribute to him on Instagram stories, but Lewis had a message for fans too:

“If one of you who watches and likes this sport thinks for a second that what we do is absolutely safe you are bitterly deceived. All these drivers, including us, put our lives at risk when we compete and people have to appreciate this. Anthoine is a hero because he took this risk to fulfill his wishes. I am very sad because this has happened. Let’s pay tribute to him and not forget him. Rest in peace, brother! ”

Born in Lyon on September 22, 1996, Anthoine began his career in Karting at just 9 years old. In the CIK-FIA Karting Academy Trophy, he finished in 2nd place in 2010 and in 3rd place in 2011 and 2012 (overall).

In 2013, he made his debut in Formula 4, winning the World Title in his first season. During the 2014 and 2015 seasons, he participated in the Formula Renault 2.0, where, in total, he accumulated 2 wins and 5 podiums.

2016 saw Hubert making his debut in European Formula 3, winning at Norisring and finishing the season in 3rd place overall. In 2017 and 2018, he participated in the GP3 series, finishing fourth overall in 2017 and winning the title in 2018 (the last season of GP3 before it merged with F3).

After having won the GP3 title, the Frenchman participated in the Formula 2 post-season test in November 2018 with MP Motorsport, and for the 2019 season, he signed a contract with the BWT Arden team. Anthoine Hubert won this year in the sprint races at Monaco and Paul Ricard.

Race in peace, Anthoine Hubert! You will always be in our hearts!
