F2 cancels Sunday race following Anthoine Hubert death
Formula 2 have confirmed that Sunday's sprint race has been cancelled following the tragic death of driver Anthoine Hubert in a terrifying collision at Spa on Saturday.
The Arden driver was involved an incident with Marino Sato, Giuliano Alesi, Ralph Boschung and Juan Manuel Correa, and the medical team were unable to save him. Sato, Alesi and Boschung were unhurt, while Correa remains in a stable condition in hospital.
As a result F2 officials have confirmed in a statement that out of respect to Hubert and his family, the race due to take place on Sunday in Belgium has been cancelled.
"Formula 1, Formula 2, and Formula 3 are deeply saddened by the passing of Anthoine Hubert following a horrific crash at today’s Feature Race at Spa-Francorchamps, involving three other drivers.
We would like to extend our deepest condolences to Anthoine’s family, loved ones, and friends. We would also like to send our heartfelt sympathies to the entire Arden team.
Anthoine has been part of our paddock since 2017. He was a fantastic driver who had a bright future ahead of him. He became GP3 Series Champion last year, and this season, he won twice in Formula 2, taking victories in Monaco, and at his home race in Le Castellet.
He was kind to everyone, always smiling, and his positive attitude was infectious.
He will be dearly missed.
Out of respect, tomorrow’s race has been cancelled."
