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 hidden Ferrari struggle that Sainz’s recent charge put to rest

Despite appearing to adjust to life as a Ferrari driver with relative ease, it was far from straightforward under the surface for Carlos Sainz Jr. But, having made breakthroughs in rather different routes at the Russian and Turkish races, he’s now targeting even greater feats for the rest of the Formula 1 season

The final throes of Brazil's fleetingly successful F1 team

Emerson Fittipaldi is better remembered for his Formula 1 world championships and Indianapolis 500 successes than for the spell running his eponymous F1 team. Despite a hugely talented roll call of staff, it was a period of internal strife, limited funding and few results - as remembered by Autosport's technical consultant

Why McLaren's expanding agenda will benefit its F1 resurgence

In the 1960s and 1970s, McLaren juggled works entries in F1, sportscars and the Indy 500 while building cars for F3 and F2. Now it’s returning to its roots, expanding 
into IndyCars and Extreme E while continuing its F1 renaissance. There’s talk of Formula E and WEC entries too. But is this all too much, too soon? STUART CODLING talks to the man in charge

Yuki Tsunoda arrived in grand prix racing amid a whirlwind of hype, which only increased after his first race impressed the biggest wigs in Formula 1. His road since has been rocky and crash-filled, and OLEG KARPOV asks why Red Bull maintains faith in a driver who admits he isn’t really that big a fan of F1?

OPINION: Valtteri Bottas is credited with pole position for the 2021 Turkish Grand Prix, despite being beaten in qualifying. This is another example of Formula 1 and the FIA scoring an own goal by forgetting what makes motorsport magic, with the Istanbul race winner also a victim of this in the championship’s recent history
