watch crazy moment kart driver luca corberi throws bumper at rival travelling at top speed before starting a pit brawl

THIS is the shocking moment kart driver Luca Corberi throws his bumper at a rival mid-race during an astonishing meltdown that has led to calls for him to be banned for life.

Corberi, 23, from Italy, also started a pit brawl with Paolo Ippolito – and the whole thing was captured on camera.

He then launches the bumper at Ippolito from close range

His sickening acts have prompted former F1 world champion Jenson Button to demand he be banned for life.

Corberi’s rage went through the roof during a FIA Karting World Championship race.

He was forced to retire nine laps into the 23-lap KZ Final race following a collision with Ippolito.

Rather than retreat from the Lonato track – which was believed to have been built and is still owned by his family – Corberi purposely waited for Ippolito to come round again.

He then picked up his broken-off bumper and launched at his fellow countryman – who reportedly avoided injury.

But it did not stop there.

Cameras later picked up Corberi – who used to race against current F1 star Lance Stroll – attacking what apparently was Ippolito in the pit after the race.

He is seen running full pelt at his rival, knocking him over then throwing punches.

Other racers and pit lane workers then rush in to try to defuse the scrap.

Button has now called on CIK-FIA Karting president Felipe Mass to take action.

He tweeted: “Luca Corberi has just destroyed any chance he had at a racing career after his disgusting behaviour today at the FIA Karting World Champs.

“His father owns the circuit and is seen power driving the guy into a wall. Life ban for both of these idiots please.”

Aside from the violence, Frenchman Jeremy Iglesias was crowned world champion after beating Dutch driver Marijn Kremers.

‘NUMBERS DON’T LIE’

Jon Jones has rejected Khabib Nurmagomedov’s claim he is the best pound-for-pound fighter.

The UFC lightweight champion stretched his unbeaten record as a pro to 29-0 in MMA on Saturday night with victory over Justin Gaethje.

Many felt it was ‘The Eagle’s’ biggest test yet as he took on the American at UFC 254 on Fight Island.

But the Dagestani fighter left everyone in no doubt who the top dog was as he needed less than ten minutes to see off the man dubbed ‘The Highlight’.

Khabib, 32, shocked everybody afterwards by announcing his retirement from MMA.

That is despite him being linked with mega-money matches against old foe Conor McGregor or his hero Georges St. Pierre.

Inside the octagon after his latest win, he said: “There is only one thing I want from UFC, to put me as No.1 pound-for-pound fighter in the world because I deserve it

However, the current P4P king Jones quickly refuted Khabib’s request.

Writing on Twitter, he wrote: “Until I take that heavily crown, I grant you the spot. Enjoy Champ.”

He then tweeted: “15 world titles, numbers don’t lie.”

‘Bones’ then wrote: “I want to congratulate Khabib for an outstanding career.

“I know he made his father along with millions of fans around the world incredibly proud today.

“May God continue to bless him on his journey.”

The American then added: “Definitely a powerful moment, but my logic is definitely not clouded.”
