Long-time friends and rushing colleagues, such as Pierre Gasly Charles Leclerc, Esteban Ocon, along with George Russell, joined the family members and friends of Hubert in the service in Chartres, France to remember that the 22-year-old.
Hubert was murdered on August 31 in a F2 accident at Spa-Francorchamps.

The Formula 2 championship tweeted:”Today, we remembered the shining light of one of our brightest stars, Anthoine Hubert, with the remaining part of the motorsport community. Our thoughts have been with all those closest to him, as his life was celebrated today at Chartres Cathedral.”
FIA president Jean Todt and world winner Alan Prost, who is a Renault F1 adviser, were among those in attendance.
