Formula 1 held a minute’s silence in memory of Anthoine Hubert before Sunday’s Belgian Grand Prix.
The Formula 2 driver, 22, died in a crash at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit.
Since a movie honouring the motorist was played at the monitor, f1 agents stumbled around one of his helmets.
Tributes continued throughout the race since fans were seen by lap 19 – .
And race winner Charles Leclerc dedicated his victory.
“This is to get Anthoine,” he explained over group wireless after crossing the line. “Feels good, but hard to enjoy on a weekend in this way.”
Earlier in the afternoon, the mother and brother of Hubert joined drivers out of F2 and Formula 3 to watch a moment’s silence.
On Sunday morning the F1 Twitter account declared:”Today we race. We do this with the heaviest of hearts, also we carry Anthoine’s memory throughout. Racing is our fantasy and our enthusiasm. We are defined by it. So we race for Anthoine. And now, and always, we honor him.”
Hubert endured a Enormous impact at approximately 170mph at the Raidillon swerves from American Juan Manuel Correa’s automobile.
His condition is stable, after operation, although correa is in intensive care. The 20-year-old suffered fractures to both his thighs and also a”slight spinal injury” in the accident and was taken to hospital by helicopter.
Governing body the FIA will start a complete investigation into the injury the way security features and the automobiles at the track behaved from the wreck and which will reevaluate its causes.
Hubert appears to have sustained two impacts – one with the hurdles on very top of Raidillon, and another if his car was struck broadside by that of Correa, whose auto subsequently turned upside down and skidded along the track onto its’halo’ head-protection apparatus.
Following his injury, a report has been created in the event of F1 driver Jules Bianchi, who suffered fatal head injuries in an accident in the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka.
But there isn’t any specific timeframe – that the FIA safety section will take some time to study all factors that are important before publishing its report, which will feed into the next actions in terms.
