Italian kart racer gets 15-year ban for bumper-throwing incident

Rodolfo Schellin

Tempers can operate scorching in motor racing, but regardless of the intensity of the levels of competition, motorists have to have to maintain it collectively much better than Luca Corberi, who was competing in an FIA Globe Karting Championship occasion in Italy very last drop. Immediately after becoming sidelined from the race, Corberi threw a piece of bodywork from his kart at a rival racer on the monitor. Corberi skipped his supposed target but another driver struck the errant bumper. And after the race was in excess of, Corberi billed at his rival and commenced punching him.

Both incidents ended up captured on video and posted on the @F1FeederSeries1 Twitter account (by way of The Travel).

Now, six months later on, the FIA has handed Corberi a 15-12 months ban from all motor racing sanctioned by the organization.

Immediately after the incident, Corberi took to Facebook to problem an apology for attacking racer Paolo Ippolito, with whom he had tangled on the monitor. “I’d like to apologize to the motorsport local community for what I’ve finished,” he wrote, incorporating that he was quitting motorsports levels of competition for lifetime.

The FIA ban, at least, will help cement that choice. In the meantime, Corberi might want to consider some anger-administration courses.
