Anthoine Hubert will be remembered across Formula 1, Formula 2 and Formula 3 at this weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix, one year on from his death at Spa-Francorchamps.
Hubert was killed in a crash at the start of the F2 feature race last year, which also left rival Juan Manuel Correa with serious leg injuries.
A minute’s silence will be held on the grid in memory of Hubert ahead of the F2 race this Saturday, and also before the F1 race on Sunday.
Hubert was part of the Renault Sport Academy and tested F1 machinery with the French manufacturer. He was also close with a number of drivers on the F1 grid, coming up through the French karting ranks with the likes of Pierre Gasly and Charles Leclerc.
A special logo will be carried on every car across F1, F2 and F3 at Spa, incorporating Hubert’s initials, F2 race number and the star that was a key part of his helmet design.
F2 has also confirmed that the number 19 that Hubert used during his 2019 season with Arden has been permanently retired. The championship had already opted against using the number this season.
