Formula 1 held a moment’s silence before Sunday’s Belgian Grand Prix.
The Formula 2 driver, 22, died on Saturday in an accident at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit.
Since a movie honouring the motorist was played in the track, f1 representatives stood around among his helmets.
Since lovers were seen by lap 19, tributes continued during the race – Hubert’s race number was 19.
And race winner Charles Leclerc dedicated his victory.
“This one is really to get Anthoine,” he said over team radio later crossing the line. “sounded great, but hard to enjoy a weekend like this.”
Earlier in the day, Hubert’s brother and mother joined drivers from Formula 3 and F2 to see a minute’s silence prior to the race.
On Sunday morning the F1 Twitter accounts declared:”Now we race. We do so with the heaviest of hearts, also we take Anthoine’s memory throughout. Just like it had been to Anthoine, rushing is our enthusiasm and our fantasy. It defines people. So today we race for Anthoine. And now, and always, we honour him.”
Hubert suffered a huge impact at approximately 170mph in the Raidillon swerves in American Juan Manuel Correa’s automobile.
Correa is in intensive care, but his condition remains stable, after operation. The 20-year-old suffered fractures to both his legs and also a”minor spinal accident” from the accident and was taken to hospital .
Governing body that the FIA will establish a complete investigation into the injury how security features and the automobiles at the monitor behaved from the wreck and that will populate its causes.
Hubert seems to have sustained two affects – one with all the hurdles at the top of Raidillon, and yet another if his car was struck broadside by that of Correa, whose automobile afterward turned upside down and skidded along the trail on its’halo’ head-protection apparatus.
In the example of F1 driver Jules Bianchi, who suffered fatal head injuries in a crash at the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix, a report was produced about two weeks after his injury at Suzuka.
But there isn’t any particular timeframe – the FIA safety section will take some time to research all factors that are important before publishing its own report, which will feed to the upcoming steps in terms.
