Spa Francorchamps CEO and her lesbian mistress were shot to death after her hubby found the pair together in bed.

Cops say he then turned the gun on himself.

According to authorities, Belgian Formula 1 auto racing chief Nathalie Maillet, 61, was found dead alongside Ann Lawrence Durviaux, 53, in her mansion in Gouvy, Belgium, on Sunday.

Police believe the lovers were murdered by Maillet’s husband, Franz Dubois. Before turning the gun on himself, he called the cops and unburdened himself.

“At 00:10, the bodies of two women and one man were discovered by the police in a house in Gouvy, all three presenting gunshot wounds,” the public prosecution service said in a statement.

“According to our information, the male individual voluntarily used his firearm to kill both women, including his wife, before killing himself.”

Sports newspaper DH Sport reported Maillet’s bisexuality was an open secret in the racing world and her husband was aware.

The Daily Mail said her colleagues raised the alarm after Maillet failed to show for the final day of the Ypres Rally. She had been CEO of the Spa-Francorchamps F1 circuit since 2016.

Her husband was also well-known in Formula 1 circles. Both were former drivers and had been married 17 years. She was more successful.

The grisly deaths triggered shock and sadness in the racing world.

“My thoughts are with Nathalie’s family, her parents, her relatives but also her teams,” said Melchior Wathelet, chairman of the board of directors of the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps.

“I know how this news will upset her staff and I wish on behalf of the entire board of directors to offer my sincere condolences to the entire Circuit team. Today we are losing a very great lady, a motorsports lover and enthusiast, a true leader who will be sorely missed,” his statement said.

“Nathalie had become the face of the circuit, she embodied this passion for racing that we all share.”

The investigation continues. Police say they are not hunting any other suspects.
