Putting this here as it happened at an F1 event.

Absolute shocker of a crash in last night's race at Spa has ended with the death of one of the competitors.

I haven't seen the impact shown on any of the tv coverage but I did see it from someone in the crowd on their phone and it really was one of the biggest you would ever hope to never see

From the tv coverage it looks like it was a lose to driver's left, bounced him across the track to driver's right and then, while stationary, was t-boned at very high speed at the top of the hill.

RIP Anthoine Hubert.

I have often felt that to be a pretty dangerous spot for when drivers do have a moment. The tyres stop the heavy wall impact but when they spit you fully across the track in the way this did they really must revisit track safety and find a way to arrest the cars so this doesn't happen again.

Nasty accident. I think Sonic is right that part of the track is dangerous especially coming up over the hill.

Truly awful. Poor fella was younger than me! Watched the crash and it was pretty brutal.
