Pirelli - Remembering Anthoine Hubert at Spa

Pirelli - Remembering Anthoine Hubert at Spa

01.09.2019: The Formula 2 and Formula 3 weekend at Spa-Francorchamps was overshadowed by the tragic death of F2 driver Anthoine Hubert following an incident during the first race.

The Formula 2 and Formula 3 weekend at Spa-Francorchamps was overshadowed by the tragic death of F2 driver Anthoine Hubert following an incident during the first race.

Pirelli extends its condolences to all of Anthoine’s family, friends and colleagues, and sends best wishes to his fellow driver Juan Manuel Correa, who was taken to hospital. Both Formula 2 races were cancelled following the incident, with a number of tributes to Anthoine taking place during the Belgian Grand Prix weekend.

In Formula 3, Pedro Piquet – the son of three-time Formula 1 champion Nelson – won the opening race for Trident on Saturday ahead of the Prema drivers Robert Shwartzman and Jehan Daruvala: Piquet claimed the lead on the first lap before pulling away from his rivals, managing his medium tyres well in warm and sunny conditions at the demanding Spa circuit.

Sunday’s second F3 race was held in much cooler conditions, and there was even a brief rain shower during a mid-race safety car period. Marcus Armstrong took the win for Prema in front of Yuki Tsunoda (Jenzer Motorsport) while Shwartzman scored another podium to increase his championship lead.

Pirelli’s head of F1 and car racing Mario Isola
: “Anthoine was loved and respected by all his racing colleagues, and it was a real pleasure for us last year in Abu Dhabi to present him with a scholarship award after he brilliantly won the GP3 Series, which helped him take the next step in his exceptionally promising career.

Like the rest of the motorsport community, we are all still struggling to come to terms with what has happened. The thoughts of us at Pirelli are now with his family and many friends.”
