Team statement: Spa-Francorchamps
Following a severe incident on the second lap of the FIA Formula 2 Championship Feature Race at Spa-Francorchamps yesterday, BWT Arden driver Anthoine Hubert sadly passed away.
Sauber Junior Team driver Juan Manuel Correa was hospitalised with serious injuries. Trident’s Giuliano Alesi escaped unharmed.
The FIA and Formula 2 have decided to cancel today’s Sprint Race, and a minute’s silence was held before the Formula 3 race and will be again before the Formula 1 Grand Prix.
The entire DAMS team extend our condolences to Anthoine’s family and the BWT Arden team and wishes Juan Manuel a speedy recovery.
