Japanese driver Yuki Tsunoda has received the Anthoine Hubert Award for best Formula 2 rookie of the year. The Red Bull-junior won three races this season and came third behind Mick Schumacher and Callum Ilott in the drivers' championship.

New prize

The Anthoine Hubert Award was introduced at the end of last year in honour of the Formula 2 driver Hubert who crashed and sadly died during the race at Spa-Francorchamps. Guanyu Zhou was the first driver to receive the award last season.

When receiving the prize Tsunoda mentioned Hubert. "I have to work even harder to become like him. It is an honour to receive this prize." Tsunoda is expected to make the transition to Formula 1 next season as a replacement for Daniil Kvyat at AlphaTauri.
