Images that the 18-year-old driver posted on TikTok show how he drives his Audi RS3 at extremely high speeds on the E17 motorway (an important north-south connection through Flanders). The odometer shows speeds of 300 kilometers per hour. Federal police are investigating the incident. The video has since been removed. On his profile are other videos where he gives a lot of gas.
Cordeel is known in the racing world as a great talent. He started his career in 2017 and reached his first peak in 2018 with a title in the Spanish Formula 4. He then also won the F4 championship in the United Arab Emirates and Italy. In May, the Fleming will make his debut in Formula 3. That is the penultimate step towards Formula 1 – the premier class of motorsport. The F3 honors list includes the names of Lewis Hamilton, Mick Schumacher, Lance Stroll and Lando Norris, who are now very successful in F1.
The manager of Cordeel claims to the Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws that Cordeel was not behind the wheel during the recordings.
