Racing driver Anthoine Hubert died on Saturday following a crash during the Formula Two race held before this weekend's F1 Belgian Grand Prix, the FIA announced.
In a statement, the auto racing governing body said that Hubert, 22, died following a “serious incident” at Spa-Francorchamps, a three-car pile-up in the second lap of the race.
“The scene was immediately attended by emergency and medical crews, and all drivers were taken to the medical centre,” read the statement.
“As a result of the incident, the FIA regrets to inform that the driver of car number 19, Antoine Hubert (FRA), succumbed to his injuries, and passed away at 18:35.”
