Hubert, 22, died from injuries sustained in an accident on the second lap of the race after losing control of his auto at the high-speed Raidillon corner.
Moments after winning, Leclerc pointed to the sky and then to Hubert's name written on the side of his auto.
An idyllic day for motor racing, under clear blue skies and late-summer sunshine on a picturesque track in Belgium, ended with the death of a 22-year-old French driver on Saturday.
Anthoine was then taken to an emergency center where the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), said he was pronounced dead at 6:35 pm local time. Correa is in stable condition in CHU Liège hospital. Hubert was taken to the track medical centre but died of his injuries one hour and 28 minutes after the crash.
"We've been classmates, I've studied since I was 13 until 19 with him, with the same professor at a private school that the federation did". Hubert's brother Victhor, who was trackside with father Francois as Saturday's tragedy unfolded, cried as he stood alongside her. Formula One drivers, team bosses and dignitaries formed an arc around the mother and son as silence fell over the Ardennes forest.
United States slaps fresh tariffs on Chinese goods in escalation of trade war
Morgan study found that Trump's tariffs will cost the average U.S. household $1,000 a year. It remains unclear how close the two sides are in reaching a final trade agreement.
Lewis Hamilton expressed his sadness in a heartfelt post on Instagram.
Mick Schumacher, son of seven-times world champion Michael, is now in his first season in series, whose field includes drivers supported by Formula One teams. Anthoine is a hero as far as I'm concerned, for taking the risk he did to chase his dreams.
The front left wheel of his Red Bull was damaged after contact with Raikkonen's Alfa Romeo, who started one place behind him on the grid in sixth. "His spirit will remain with the team and we will race in his memory".
Hubert had won the 2018 GP3 Series, as well as the 2013 French F4 Championship. Verstappen finished in the top five of every other race this season and it was his first retirement since the Hungarian Grand Prix in July previous year.
"We kept going, held our place in the top ten, and I thought at one stage we might pick up some points".
"We grew up in karting for many, many years, and to lose him yesterday was a big shock for me but obviously for everyone in motorsport, so it was a very sad day".
The fatal crash comes five years after Formula 1 driver Jules Bianchi was killed after a collision during the Japanese Grand Prix.
