Anthoine Huber, Formula 2 rider, was bid farewell to Chartres in France on Tuesday and died a week and a half ago in a Belgian race. A ceremony was held in the city cathedral for three hours during which Alain Prost, a former four-time Formula One champion, delivered a speech.
Almost everyone in the F1 team was there to count, FIA-led Jean Todt, Formula 1 bosses, Chase Carey, Ross Brawn, Sean Bratches, Ferrari, Alfa Romeo and Renault boss Mattia Binotto, Fredric Vasseur and Cyril Abiteboul. And, of course, fellow riders, many F2 pilots, and F1 from Charles Leclerc, Pierre Gasly, Esteban Ocon and George Russell. Former F1 race winner Jean Alesi and his son Giuliano, who was also involved in the accident, also went to the funeral.
Hubert was a GP3 champion and won two Formula 2 races this year. September 22 would have been 23 years old.
