The Formula 2 championship organisers have announced Sunday’s sprint race has been cancelled following the crash which claimed the life of Anthoine Hubert earlier today.
Correa has been taken to hospital in stable condition. FIA president Jean Todt described his injuries as “serious”.
Having previously confirmed the feature race would not be restarted, the Formula 2 have now confirmed that “out of respect, tomorrow’s F2 race has been cancelled.”
In a joint statement, F1, F2 and F3 said the championships were “deeply saddened by the passing of Anthoine Hubert following a horrific crash at today’s feature race at Spa-Francorchamps, involving three other drivers.”
Marino Sato and Giuliano Alesi were also involved in the crash but escaped injury.
“We would like to extend our deepest condolences to Anthoine’s family, loved ones, and friends,” they added. “We would also like to send our heartfelt sympathies to the entire Arden team.
“Anthoine has been part of our paddock since 2017. He was a fantastic driver who had a bright future ahead of him. He became GP3 Series Champion last year, and this season, he won twice in Formula 2, taking victories in Monaco, and at his home race in Le Castellet.
“He was kind to everyone, always smiling, and his positive attitude was infectious. He will be dearly missed.”
