The Italian Luca Corberi threw a piece in the middle of the track to a rival whom he accused of having caused his abandonment. And he went to look for him in the pits.
A very serious action, which could have cost the life of a pilot (even the aggressor himself) was seen this Sunday on the last date of the KZ category of the Karting World Cup, cradle of great Formula 1 racers: the pilot Luca Corberi, angry with the rival who, according to him, had been responsible for his abandonment, grabbed the bumper of his vehicle, approached the track, waited for the opponent to pass in question and he flipped the piece, endangering everyone who passed through the sector.
The event occurred when ten laps of the 25 scheduled in the competition were being completed. Corberi, a 23-year-old Italian and son of the owners of the Lonato circuit, where the race was held, was left out as he fought between places 10 and 15.
In his head, the person responsible for being left out was his compatriot Paolo Ippolito, with whom he had the touch that made him leave the track. Furious, Corberi lost his temper, grabbed the bumper of the car and waited patiently for the other driver to pass through the area again to throw it at him.
Miraculously, the piece of vehicle, although it appeared to touch one of the competitors, did not cause an accident.
But that was not all in the unhinged raid from Italian. When he retired, he did not want to comply with the instructions of the track officials and later he raised the stakes: in the pit area he went to look for Ippolito (considerably smaller than him) and started hitting him.
The winner of the race was the French Jeremy Iglesias, which will surely gain less media relevance than the author of an almost criminal act.
Logically, Corberi will be sanctioned and fan requests multiplied for him to be banned from motorsports for life.
The head of the Karting Commission in the International Federation (FIA) is the Brazilian ex Formula 1 Felipe Massa. From this category emerged some of the greatest talents in history, such as Michael Schumacher or Ayrton Senna and current figures such as Fernando Alonso or Sebastian Vettel.
