F1 and F3 to hold minute's silence in memory of Anthoine Hubert

Formula 1 and FIA Formula 3 will hold a minute's silence in honour of Anthoine Hubert before the Belgian Grand Prix

F1 and F3 to hold minute's silence in memory of Anthoine Hubert

Hubert passed away after a crash in the Formula 2 Championship race at Spa on Saturday, and the F2 race on Sunday has been cancelled.

F2's sister championship F3 will still race, moving into the later slot normally occupied by F2, and many of its teams are running Hubert tributes on their cars.

A minute of silence will be held by F3 at 10:50 local time just before its race, while a minute's silence is also scheduled for 14:53 local time just before the F1 grand prix.

HWA is among the F3 teams running stickers in honour of Hubert, its version reading 'RIP Anthoine'. The team has a technical tie-up with the Arden squad with which Hubert was competing in F2 this year.

Jake Hughes, one of Hubert's ART Grand Prix team-mates last season when Hubert won the GP3 Series title and a close friend, drives for HWA in F3 and has stickers on his car.

MP Motorsport has added a small 'AH' and French flag to the halo of its F3 car.

While some teams have struggled to get stickers made up overnight, more are planning to honour Hubert on their cars at Monza next week when the F2 Championship resumes alongside F1 and F3.

The times that suggest Verstappen should be confident of F1 Russian GP recovery

For the second race in a row, Mercedes has ended the first day of track action on top. It’s in a commanding position at the Russian Grand Prix once again – this time largely thanks to Max Verstappen’s upcoming engine-change grid penalty. But there’s plenty to suggest all hope is not lost for the championship leader at Sochi

OPINION: With its days apparently numbered, the MGU-H looks set to be dropped from Formula 1’s future engine rules in order to entice new manufacturers in. While it may appear a change of direction, the benefits for teams and fans could make the decision a worthwhile call

OPINION: Formula 1 reconvenes for the Russian Grand Prix two weeks after the latest blow in ‘Max Verstappen vs Lewis Hamilton’. While the Silverstone and Monza incidents were controversial, they thankfully lacked one element that so far separates the 2021 title fight from the worst examples of ugly championship battles

How F1’s other champion to emerge from 1991 thrived at Lotus

Mika Hakkinen became Michael Schumacher’s biggest rival in Formula 1 in the late-90s and early 2000s, having also made his F1 debut in 1991. But as MARK GALLAGHER recalls, while Schumacher wowed the world with a car that was eminently capable, Hakkinen was fighting to make his mark with a famous team in terminal decline
