Formula 2 sprint leader Jehan Daruvala is forced to retire at the Belgian Grand Prix after his headrest bizarrely flies off his car and onto the track

A bizarre incident during the Formula 2 sprint race on Saturday saw part of a driver’s car come flying out onto the track. From the start of the second lap it became clear that part of the Indian driver’s car had come dislodged. Upon closer inspection it was clear that Daruvala’s headrest had become completely dislodged, and was hanging on by the halo. The precarious nature of the headrest’s attachment only worsened throughout the lap, and after completing a heavy braking turn at a chicane his headrest dislodged entirely and spilled off onto the track. Daruvala subsequently returned to the pits after the incident, but with a suitable replacement seemingly unavailable the Formula E reserve driver was forced to retire.
