Motor Racing World Unites to Pay Tribute to the Late Anthoine Hubert

September 1, 2019 12:44 am

Earlier today, French F2 driver Anthoine Hubert tragically succumbed to injuries sustained in a horror crash in the Belgian GP feature race. That race was cancelled, and out of respect for the fallen, Sunday’s F2 race will also be cancelled.

The motor racing world soon banded together to honour the young Frenchman who lost his life doing what he loved. This included a rather touching message from Lewis Hamilton. Anthoine Hubert collided with Juan Manuel Correa, Guiliano Alesi and Marino Sato. While Sato and Alesi were able to walk away, the real concern was for Hubert and Correa.

Sadly, Hubert would succumb to his injuries, but Correa is reportedly in a stable condition.
