After the fatal accident with the young Frenchman Anthoine Hubert in Spa, Belgium, the condition of Formula 2 driver Juan Manuel Correa, who was also involved in the crash, is critical. The 20-year-old suffered a respiratory arrest, but is stable.

According to the statement, her son is currently connected to a breathing apparatus. His condition is critical but stable. "We are confident that our son will surprise us, as he always does with his enormous will to fight and his strength, and that he will completely recover," wrote the parents.
