Sergio Canamasas - FIA Formula 2

Former FIA Formula 2 driver Sergio Canamasas has opened up on why he abruptly ended his motorsport last year in Hungary, relating to an ‘pathetic’ incident to his father.

The Spaniard raced in the GP2 and Formula 2 series for six years where he picked up one podium finish. He raced in last year’s Formula 2 season with Trident before switching to Rapax at the Red Bull Ring.

Following a double retirement at the Hungaroring, Canamasas left the series and retired from motorsport as a whole, remaining silent on his social media channels. Roberto Merhi replaced him for the rest of the season.

Canamasas broke silence on his official twitter page and revealed he stopped racing due to bad behavior from a security personnel and bad attitude and professionalism from a doctor of the FIA.

The thirty year old Spaniard described the incident as ‘pathetic and miserable’ which almost cost his father’s life when he was racing.

“One year ago today, I almost lost my father when I was racing because of the bad behavior of the security, and then for the bad attitude and professionalism of the doctor at #HungarianGP and @fia @F1 It couldn’t be worse, was pathetic and miserable. Since then I stopped racing” said Canamasas on his official twitter account.

The FIA have not responded or posted a statement over the incident or  tweet Canamasas has posted.
