The dynamic is not fully clear but, for what may matter, during the second lap of the Formula 2 Feature Race at Spa-Francorchamps, Arden driver Anothoine Hubert lost control of his car on top of Eau Rouge-Radillon and crashed heavily into the barriers. His already damaged Arden car bounced back into the escape road where was collected sideways by Juan Manuel Correa. The American driver was approaching at an approximate speed of 270 kph and hit the Frenchman's car on the side-pod.
Medical crew rushed to the scene, ambulances were immediately deployed and the race cancelled. The two drivers were taken to the circuit hospital.

A couple of hours later the FIA announced that Anothoine Hubert has succumbed to his injuries and died at 18:35 local time. Correa has now been transferred to Liéges in stable conditions: the nose of his car -which also rolled over- was disintegrated by the impact and therefore his legs, being out of the car, were very vulnerable. Further news will follow as soon as they will be realized by the FIA.
