F1 star gets stuck in helping flood victims

Yuki Tsunoda helps flood victims in Italy. Japan’s Formula 1 driver, Yuki Tsunoda was seen on the streets of the city of Faenza helping the people after the terrible floods that hit northern Italy.

F1 driver Yuki Tsunoda was spotted in Faenza – headquarters of the AlphaTauri Formula One team – helping residents clear the streets after the region was hit by heavy storms in recent days, causing deadly flooding.

While Formula 1 has chosen to cancel the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, which was due to be held this weekend in Imola, the AlphaTauri driver and some of his team members have chosen to help the victims by taking part in the clean-up operations in the town of Faenza.

“After a horrible night, the city is heavily impacted: dust, mud and the smell of petrol everywhere,” wrote the Japanese driver on his social networks.

“At the moment, people are struggling to find food and especially accommodation, after many have been evacuated from their homes,” he added, while asking his community to help the victims by making a donation via the platform set up for the occasion (see below).



On Thursday, Ferrari announced that one million euros would be made available to the Italian civil protection to help the victims.

The funds will be used, with the coordination of the territorial authorities, to help the local population affected by the recent floods, with particular emphasis on environmental recovery and hydrogeological instability management projects.

The death toll from the floods in northern Italy has now risen to 13, while the extensive damage has been estimated at several billion. In some places, the equivalent of six months’ rainfall fell in 24 hours.

More than 100,000 people had to leave their homes, while huge areas of farmland were also submerged. Bridges collapsed and as many as 400 roads collapsed.
