A serious accident in Formula 2 overshadowed Logan Sargeant’s (Carlin) victory in the feature race at Silverstone on Sunday.
Shortly after the start, Roy Nissany and Dennis Hauger clashed. The Norwegian Hauger had to drive over the curbs, took off with his Prema car and landed on Nissany’s car.
Without the Halo system, the Israeli (Dams) would probably not have survived the crash.
“He drives like this in every race and forces everyone off the track,” Hauger then sharply criticized his competitors: “His driving style is that of a four-year-old. I hope that the rulers will take care of it.”
Hauger, who got away with the horror of the crash, added: “Within the series, everyone knows how he is [Nissany] drives and how little brain he uses on the track. Luckily we both didn’t get hurt because that’s the most important thing.”
Sargeant writes Formula 2 history
Sargeant was the first American racing driver to win a Formula 2 race. Behind the Williams junior, Theo Pourchaire (ART) secured second place ahead of Sargeant’s teammate Liam Lawson.
As in the sprint race on Saturday, which was won by Australian Jack Doohan (Virtuosi), David Beckmann had no chance of scoring points. The man from Iserlohn, who replaced the suspended Amaury Cordeel at Van Amersfoort Racing, finished 19th.
In the overall standings, Pourchaire reduced the gap to leader Felipe Drugovich (Brazil) to 42 points. The next races will be in Spielberg/Austria next week.
