The FIA has invited former FIA race director Charlie Whiting's son to start the British Grand Prix on Sunday.
Whiting, who had been in charge of starting Formula 1 races for more than 23 years in his role, unexpectedly passed away earlier this year, shocking the world of F1.
On Thursday a memorial event was held at the Silverstone Circuit where former and current drivers, team members, journalists and officials remembered the 66-year-old.
In addition to speeches from Whiting's wife Juliette, his daughter, F1 boss Ross Brawn and FIA president Jean Todt, Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel also gave a moving eulogy in which he thanked Whiting for his service and for looking after all the drivers during his time in the sport.
As part of the tribute, the FIA has invited Whiting's 12-year-old son Justin, to kick off the British GP by pressing the starter button, which will activate the light system.
He will be accompanied by Christian Bryll, who took over race start duties following Whiting's passing.
