The Formula 1 organization has inserted a minute of silence before Sunday before the Belgian Grand Prix of Spa-Francorchamps to commemorate French driver Anthoine Hubert.
Formula 2 driver Hubert died on Saturday in a major crash on the circuit in the Belgian Ardennes. The planned race in its class prior to the 12th Formula 1 GP of the season is canceled.
The 22-year-old Hubert fell off the track in the fast Raidillon section of Spa in the second round of the main race in Formula 2.
The American Juan Manuel Correa then hit the Frenchman's car full speed in the side. Hubert was still taken to a hospital, but doctors could no longer do anything for him.
Correa has undergone successful surgery and is in stable condition in intensive care in Liège. He has broken legs and a sore back, his team reports in a statement on Sunday.

Further adjustments to the program about other forms of remembrance of Hubert are still being discussed, the organizing motorsport federation FIA says.
