Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium - Renault driver Daniel Ricciardo said he had doubts about racing in Sunday’s Belgian Formula One Grand Prix after the death of French racer Anthoine Hubert.
The 22-year-old, who was a member of Renault’s young driver programme, died from injuries sustained in a high-speed crash during a Formula Two race on Saturday at the same Spa-Francorchamps track that hosts Formula One.
A sombre mood hung over the Spa paddock as a result of the incident, the first driver fatality at a Formula One race weekend since Brazilian great Ayrton Senna and Austrian Roland Ratzenberger died at Imola in 1994.
“You question, is it really worth it?” said the Australian, who finished 14th after a difficult race.
“At the end of the day it is a simple question but a pretty honest one as well.
