British Formula 1 drivers led tributes to a volunteer race marshal who died when hit by a car at Brands Hatch in August. Robert Foote, 67, was killed when a competitor spun off the track in the British Automobile Racing Club (BARC) club car championship race. Racing was cancelled for the remainder of the day.
Lewis Hamilton posted a message on Instagram: “Devastated to hear of the passing of a marshal at the Brands Hatch circuit. These volunteers are what makes racing possible, they are heroes. My heart is with his family.”
McLaren’s Lando Norris also paid tribute, posting: “Heartbreaking. We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without marshals. They’re the heroes of our sport. My thoughts are with the family and friends of those involved.”
