The Sauber junior team by Charouz has confirmed it will field a one-car entry at the upcoming Formula 2 round at Monza.

Ferrari Academy Driver Callum Ilott will represent the team’s sole entry following the injuries Juan Manuel Correa suffered in a serious crash that claimed the life of Anthoine Hubert at Spa last weekend.

Following surgery, Correa has been transferred to a specialist intensive care unit in the United Kingdom to continue his rehabilitation from two fractured legs and a minor spinal injury.

Correa was involved in a violent crash on the second lap of Saturday’s opening F2 feature race, with Hubert tragically succumbing to injuries he sustained in the incident.

Charouz said Correa’s car will remain in the team’s garage throughout the Italian Grand Prix weekend as a silent tribute to the 22-year-old Frenchman.

Trident announced earlier on Wednesday that it would only run one entry at Monza after Giuliano Alesi’s car was impounded as part of the ongoing investigation into the crash.

Alesi lost control of his car at Eau Rouge, which forced Hubert to take avoiding action, before he was hit at high-speed by Correa in the Raidillon run-off area.

The son of 1995 Canadian Grand Prix winner Jean will therefore drive Trident’s sister car, with teammate Ralph Boschung sitting out the weekend as a result.

Hubert’s team Arden will also only run car driven by Tatiana Calderon this weekend.
