Felipe Massa, the president of the international karting commission of the FIA, has promised those involved in incidents during yesterday’s world championship KZ Final in Italy will “face the consequences”.
Luca Corberi, 23, threw the bumper of his kart at fellow Italian racer Paolo Ippolito, 24, after the pair tangled during the race, forcing Corberi out. Corberi, who drives for Tony Kart, and his CRG rival Ippolito were both disqualified over their roles in the collision, footage of which was not broadcast.
Amateur video which circulated on social media appeared to show Corberi and a second individual attacking Ippolito in the paddock after the race. Massa, who became the CIK-FIA president in 2017, shared images of both incidents, stating “this behaviour is unacceptable in our sport” and “those individuals will face the consequences of their actions”.
Massa’s former Formula 1 rival Jenson Button said yesterday Corberi and his father should be given lifetime bans for their behaviour.

i do hope the police charge this man with assault and battery or even attempted murder. The bumper couldve killed a driver if it struck him in the wrong spot. These karts are going at least 50kph
He should have been escorted away from the circuit by the police after throwing the bumper. Absolutely outrageous behaviour.
