Formula 2 has confirmed it will not race on Sunday at Spa out of respect following the death of Anthoine Hubert.

BWT Arden driver Hubert was killed following an accident on the second lap of Saturday's Feature Race that saw his car hit the wall at Raidillon before being struck by Juan Manuel Correa's car. He was 22 years old.

The Feature Race was suspended following the crash before being cancelled altogether, with the series later confirming that it would not be holding Sunday's planned Sprint Race.

"Formula 1, Formula 2, and Formula 3 are deeply saddened by the passing of Anthoine Hubert following a horrific crash at today’s Feature Race at Spa-Francorchamps, involving three other drivers," a statement reads.

"We would like to extend our deepest condolences to Anthoine’s family, loved ones, and friends. We would also like to send our heartfelt sympathies to the entire Arden team.

"Anthoine has been part of our paddock since 2017. He was a fantastic driver who had a bright future ahead of him. He became GP3 Series Champion last year, and this season, he won twice in Formula 2, taking victories in Monaco, and at his home race in Le Castellet.

"He was kind to everyone, always smiling, and his positive attitude was infectious. He will be dearly missed.

"Out of respect, tomorrow’s race has been cancelled."

Formula 3's race will still go ahead, taking place in F2's time slot.
