Charles Leclerc won a pole position at Spa Francorchamps with a great performance, which is the least important thing today. Just a few hours after Ferrari's trim, the famous Belgian track claimed the life of a young racer. After a horrific accident in Raidillon, Formula 2 racer Anthoine Hubert lost his fight for life.
Anthoine Hubert was just at the beginning of his race track. Following last year's GP3 Series Champions title, Hubert made his Formula 2 debut this year, with French Renault taking over. Hubert followed his dreams, and his great wish was to become a Formula One racer and win the World Championship with Renault.
Thousands of them are making the race, and today at Spa Francorchamps they were not on the side of a young Frenchman who, after an unfortunate set of circumstances, found himself in a place where he is more than 300 miles per hour driven by his racing counterpart Juan Manuel Correa. Hubert died a bad hour after the accident, all 22 years old.
It is only in such moments that we actually realize that racing sports, despite all the safety measures in recent years, are still very dangerous, and when the young life goes out all victories, points and best starting positions become irrelevant .
RIP Anthoine Hubert
