Daniel Ricciardo says that he had about rushing at the Grand Prix after the crash which killed Formula 2 driver Anthoine Hubert doubts.
Hubert died on Saturdayfollowing Formula 1 qualifying ended.
Renault driver Ricciardo said:”You wonder:’Is it actually worthwhile?’
“Yeah, it is our job and it is our profession and it is our life, but in addition it’s still just racing cars around in circles.”
Hubert crashed at the Raidillon corner, that the conclusion of this mythical Eau Rouge swerves at the top of the hill, which F1 cars take at more than 180mph.
Rush winner Charles Leclerc of Ferrari, who’d understood Hubert since youth, admitted it had been”a significant struggle to shut the visor and proceed through this exact same corner in the exact same rate you do the day before – but that’s what you need to do at the ending”.
And the 21-year-old admitted it was”very difficult” to appreciate his first F1 win at the circumstances.
Ricciardo stated that he was”glad the race was over”.
The 30-year-old Australian stated:”I understand, weirdly enough, the best manner we could kind of show our admiration was to race, but I do not think some of us actually wanted to be here, or wanted to race – at least, I am speaking for myself, but I am positive I’m not the only one.
“It was difficult. It was tough to be here and attempt to put on a brave face for everyone.
“I know a lot of people in the paddock are hurting. I think everyone’s relieved it is done and we could proceed out and hopefully it’s the final time this stuff happens.”
McLaren’s Lando Norris, that dropped fifth place when his engine failed on the final lap, stated he had also had doubts.
“I didn’t feel great beforehand of this race,” said Norris. “What happened on Saturday could happen to some people. It may have been me racing in Formula 2. It starts shaking you, when you feel like this.
“Maybe some people today take it much better than others, but I didn’t take it too well.
“In the end of the evening, my job will be to rush for the group. Do things sometimes I don’t want to perform, go on and I need to live my entire life. I wanted to race, however in exactly the moment I felt sorry for everyone involved. I don’t actually like talking about it.
“He had been a racer like we all are however he was the unfortunate guy. It was quite surprising, and something which is so rare, but at exactly the identical time that it could still happen in Formula 1.”
Governing body the FIA has established an investigation into the crash.
Race director Michael Masi said:”Safety is evolving. Different materials become accessible once technology become available, security is an evolving process. It is something which will never end.
“I have said it before and I’ll repeat it: Safety is among the core pillars of the FIA, a part of the reason they exist. This was. We’ll continue to investigate and look at things and improve items as best we can.”
