Belgian GP: F2 race cancelled after horrific crash at Spa-Francochamps in which one car appears to split in half – The Sun

THE Formula Two race at the Belgium Grand Prix has been cancelled following a horrific crash involving two cars.

The horrendous accident on the exit of Eau Rouge involved Antoine Hubert and Juan Manuel Correa.


Hubert initially smashed into the barrier and rolled back into the track before Correa then collided into the side of him.

Images showed Hubert's vehicle practically split in half as debris scattered across the track.

Correa's vehicle came to rest upside down.

Images showed a number of ambulances at the scene as they tended to the two drivers before being taken away.

According to a reporter at the track, both drivers appeared to be conscious when they were rushed off in an ambulance although no official statement has been made.

Correa, 20, is an American Alfa Romeo development driver living in Barcelona while Hubert is a 22-year-old driving for Renault

Medical crews quickly made their way onto the track and the race was postponed before being later cancelled.

A statement on the FIA Formula Two Twitter account read: "Following a crash in the first sector on Lap 2 the Feature Race will not resume. We will provide more information when we get it.”

Television cameras did not show replays of the crash and they abruptly ended the coverage.

Mick Schumacher was involved in a minor collision earlier in the race at the first corner.
