Franz Toast, team leader: “A sad day – motorsport suffered a tragic loss, the Formula 2 driver Antoine Hubert died. This is a sad day for the entire racing community. On behalf of Toro Rosso, I offer my deepest condolences to his family and friends during such a difficult time.
Our thoughts are also with Juan Manuel Correa. We hope for his full recovery. ”
Toyoharu Tanabe, CTO Honda F1: “We are deeply saddened by the news of the death of Antoine Hubert during today’s Formula 2 race. On behalf of the Honda Motor Company, I offer my deepest condolences to his family and friends. Our thoughts are also with Juan-Manuel Correa, injured in this incident.
Both riders Toro Rosso did not come out of the first part of the qualification. They were unable to drive their fast laps due to the red flags that appeared as a result of problems with Giovinazzi. Like yesterday, Daniil Kvyat used a power plant of the fourth specification. This means that he will start at the end of the peloton, so today his engineers focused on preparing for the race, and not for qualification.
We have to hold the first race with a power plant of the fourth specification on the highway, where the engine load is very high. The paramount task is to finish the race with all four cars. In the Spa you can overtake, we hope that our riders will win back the position. ”
