The Formula 2 community has paid tribute to Henry Surtees at the first race meeting following the death of the teenager in an accident at Brands Hatch.

Surtees, the son of former F1 title winner John Surtees, lost his life after he was struck on the helmet by a wheel that had broken away from the car of Jack Clarke after he went off in the barriers.

As a tribute, Surtees' car was placed on pole position at Donington, with all 24 F2 drivers stood behind, together with MSV's Chief Executive Jonathan Palmer and the entire Formula Two team.

A minute's silence was held at 9.30am.

All 24 Formula Two cars also carried a personal tribute sticker to Surtees on the rear wing for the two races, bearing the simple message: "Henry - we miss you".

Andy Soucek and Julien Jousse took a win apiece from the second British event of the season.
