Deaths by Formula2 car crashes unfortunately happen from time to time and these notable F2 drivers lost their lives doing what they loved, racing cars. Fatal F2 racing accidents include crashes because of motor malfunction, driver's carelessness or just bad luck, but whatever the cause, each has taken the life of at least one driver. Listed below are F2 race drivers killed on the race tracks and those killed because of Formula Two car crashes elsewhere.

As can be seen in the dates of death for these drivers, many of these crashes occurred decades ago. In the time since, safety procedures have improved as has the racing technology used to both make cars perform better but also keep the race car drivers safer. Sadly, even with the best polices and high-tech equipment in cars, deaths on the F2 circuit still occur.

Formula2 is unfortunately not the only race car circuit to see fatal crashes throughout the years. Similar accidents that have taken lives have been seen in other leagues with lists for Formula1 fatal race accidents and Indy car fatal crashes unfortunately in existence as well.
