Motorsport mourns after F2 driver Anthoine Hubert dies

By JEROME PUGMIRE an hour ago

SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS, Belgium (AP) — Motorsport is mourning the death of Formula Two driver Anthoine Hubert, who was killed following a heavy crash at the Belgian Grand Prix on Saturday.

The 22-year-old Frenchman died following an estimated 160 mph (257 kph) collision with U.S. driver Juan-Manuel Correa’s car as they exited a corner on Lap 2 at the high-speed Spa-Francorchamps track, which just hours earlier saw qualifying for Sunday’s Formula One race.

Both Hubert’s and Correa’s cars were severed in two following the crash, with Correa’s car flipped upside down. Hubert’s car sustained a huge impact and span around violently, as did Correa’s, as debris from both cars was sprayed all over the track. Medics rushed to reach them on the 7-kilometer (4.3-mile) track located in the Ardennes forest.

As other drivers swerved around the mangled wreckage of both cars, the race was canceled a few minutes later.
