Almost a month on from the tragic events of Spa and the motorsport fraternity is still reeling from the death of Hubert and the injuries to Juan Manuel Correa, who remains in hospital with serious injuries to his legs and lungs.
Following an emotionally-charged weekend in Monza which saw Jack Aitken take victory in the F2 sprint race before unfurling the French flag on the podium in memory of Anthoine, Jack and his fellow Renault academy drivers – of which Hubert was part – will all run his helmet design in Sochi this weekend.
Thanks to everyone who helped make this possible, @StiloOfficial , Amato Design, BS Designs Helmet and @RenaultF1Team . Got to be worth a few tenths with his helping hand… ❤ #AH19 pic.twitter.com/TCBW89lQ3u

Aitken and Guanya Zhou will run the helmets in Formula 2 this weekend, with Max Fewtrell, Christian Lundgaard and Ye Yifei carrying the designs in Formula 3.
It’s an incredibly touching gesture. Here’s hoping we get to see Anthoine’s helmet colours taking the top step of the podium once more.
