Michael Schumacher's son has rallied around the distraught family of Formula 2 driver Anthoine Hubert who was killed in a 170mph horror crash at the Belgian Grand Prix yesterday.

Prema Racing's Mick Schumacher hugged Hubert's brother before standing with the bereaved for a minute's silence at the Spa-Francorchamps race track in honour of the tragic 22-year-old Frenchman.

A touching photograph from the ceremony shows Hubert's heartbroken mother and brother holding their lost loved one's helmet, in front of a string of current and former competitors who were gathered to pay their respects.

The Renault Academy driver, who had been competing in his first season in the high-octane sport's second tier, rammed into the barrier trying to avoid a suspected out-of-control car.

His vehicle then bounced back on to the race track and spun into the path of a third driver, resulting in a grisly collision which killed Hubert.
