Amaury Cordeel has gotten herself into trouble. The 18-year-old Belgian racing talent posted a video on his TikTok page in which he races over the E17 at high speed.
The video in question has since been removed, but Cordeel reached speeds of up to 300 kilometers per hour. The police are aware of the facts and have started an investigation. This is reported by Het Laatste Nieuws.
The teenager from Temse will make his debut in Formula 3 in May. Cordeel will do so at Campos Racing and will drive his first race at the Barcelona circuit. On August 29, the Grand Prix of Belgium is on the program, which will be held at Spa-Francorchamps.
Cordeel won the Spanish Formula 4 Championship in 2018, winning four races. He then also won two races in the F4 Championship of the NEZ (Northern Europe and the Netherlands) and one in the F4 Championship of the UAE. In the past two editions of the heavily occupied Renault Eurocup, things went less well, each time finishing 15th in the final standings.
Now he wants to shine again in F3. “This is where I want to be at the moment,” said the Belgian earlier this week to the competition’s website. “There are a lot of competitive riders from all over the world. Dueling them will help me get better. That’s why I chose this championship. Last season I had a hard time, I don’t know exactly why. I expected more from myself, but things didn’t go to plan. I have been training hard in recent months. I hope to hold a training camp here in Belgium before the start of the season, together with some friends from other sports such as cycling and swimming. ”
