Anthoine Hubert’s funeral to be held on Tuesday

Anthoine Hubert’s funeral will take place on Tuesday afternoon at Chartres Cathedral in Northern France.

The date and time for Anthoine Hubert’s funeral has been confirmed. The 22 year old Frenchman was tragically killed in an accident during last weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix weekend. Driving for BWT Arden, a separate crash ahead of him on track forced Hubert to take avoiding action, resulting in a collision between him and Charouz’ Juan Manuel Correa.

The race was immediately red flagged as medical and extraction teams worked to save Hubert’s life but, ninety minutes after the accident, the FIA confirmed the young star had lost his life.

A minute’s silence was held in his honour by both the Formula 3 and Formula 1 communities the following day, ahead of their respective races at the venue, while the Formula 2 sprint race was cancelled.

Hubert’s funeral arrangements have since been confirmed. It will take place on September 10th, Tuesday, at the Cathedrale Notre-Dame in the French city of Chartres. It is scheduled for 2pm.

Longtime personal sponsor Olivier Lamirault of the Lamirault Groupe Automobile paid tribute to Hubert as he confirmed the funeral schedule, telling L’Echo Republicain: “I’m devastated, it’s complicated and I think it will stay that way for a long time.”

As a result of the accident, BWT Arden fielded just a single car for the Italian Grand Prix weekend, driven by Tatiana Calderon. Her fellow Alfa Romeo development driver teammate Juan Manuel Correa, the other driver involved in the accident, continues to recover in hospital in the UK. He has been placed in an induced coma to help combat acute respiratory failure, caused by the impact of the collision.
