Formula 2 Driver Dino Zamparelli Shows Incredible Control in 2012 Belgian GP

During the 2012 FIA Formula Two Belgian Grand Prix, a soggy track greeted the drivers. Conditions were so treacherous that a number of drivers were skidding all over the place. One of the biggest victims was British driver Dino Zamparelli, the then 19-year old was caught out spectacularly by the conditions.

While heading up Eau Rouge and Radillon, Dino Zamparelli was on the Kemmel Straight when it happened. He was startled when he suddenly came upon the back of another car. With lightning quick reflexes, he took to the grass and managed to avoid a collision. In the process he overtook at least four cars while on the grass.

What was actually amazing about that save was the fact that he never even touched the barrier. Travelling at 150 mph, Dino Zamparelli shows his quick thinking and reactions to get away with just a broken right rear suspension. The good news was that he managed to finish in the points in that race. In the end, he finished 8th in the championship that year.

Currently, the now 26-year old is racing in the 2019 British GT Championship, though he has only made four appearances. Meanwhile, the Formula Two championship was dissolved after the 2012 season and replaced by the F2 championship.
