Driver demands action after F2 crash: Don't wait until someone is killed

W Series driver Abbie Eaton has demanded that action be taken regarding safety after a serious accident in the F2 Feature Race at the Silverstone Circuit over the weekend.

W Series driver Abbie Eaton has called for action to be taken on safety following a frightening accident in the F2 Feature Race over the British Grand Prix weekend. Zhou Guanyu was not the only driver to be protected by the Halo on his car over the weekend at Silverstone, with Formula 2 driver Roy Nissany also suffering a horror accident when he collided with fellow competitor Dennis Hauger. Hauger was attempting to overtake Nissany after he ran wide in front of him, but instead the two collided, sending Hauger skidding off the circuit with a puncture before being launched by a kerb and flying across Nissany’s car. Both drivers were uninjured in the incident. Nissany has since been handed a five-place grid penalty for the next race after being deemed to have caused the collision.

Eaton: Don't wait until someone is killed

Eaton, who broke her back in a W Series accident last year, has now come out in support of further safety improvements, stating that more needs to be done in regard to stricter track limits to keep drivers safe. "When will people learn? We need to use a safer way to control track limits," she said on Twitter. "The Halo has been one of the best safety systems to be introduced, let's move forward with track limit policing too. Don't wait until someone is killed."
