At Brands Hatch, Edoardo Piscopo entered the fourth round of the 2009 Formula Two season, scoring two points finishes. Unfortunately, race results were totally overshadowed by a terrible accident that claimed the life of F.2 contender Henry Surtees. The British driver was hit by a flying wheel after a crash at Sheene, and passed away aged 18, in a total shock for motorsports fans and insiders.

"It's a great tragedy, and we're all shocked for what happened. It's been a really unfortunate accident that could have happened to anyone of us. Henry was a good guy and a great driver and, in these terrible moments, my thoughts are with the Surtees family

"I ended up both races in the points zone, but results mean nothing after what happened. Being back on-track at Donington will be tough for everybody".
