Yesterday the IndyCar paddock also observed a minute of silence for Hubert following the conclusion of its third practice session at Portland, where the penultimate round of the championship takes place today.
Hubert’s team principal at Arden, Garry Horner, said they are “in complete shock and extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to Anthoine’s family and friends.”
“Anthoine was a very bright talent and an incredibly well liked member of our team and the Renault Junior programme.
“We also extend our thoughts to the family of Juan-Manuel as he remains in hospital.”
