Juan Manuel Correa remains in an induced coma with paralysis at a London hospital, with his key vital indicators showing slight signs of improvement, as per the latest medical update issued by his family on Friday evening.

Correa sustained severe injuries in the Formula 2 accident that claimed the life of Anthoine Hubert at Spa on August 30, leading to him being placed in a medically-induced coma upon his transfer to London after falling into acute respiratory failure.

A statement was issued by the Correa family on Friday confirming that JM remains in an induced coma, but has shown signs of "minor improvement".

"Juan Manuel remains in a state of induced coma with paralysis in order for his lungs to get as much rest as possible. Continuing to be assisted by an ECMO machine many of the key vital indicators have improved slightly while others have deteriorated very little," the statement reads.

"We have been reminded by the doctors that as long as Juan Manuel continues in an upward trend of improvement, even if very little, it is all that we can ask for at the moment. Infections are under control and respiratory indicators remain stable and all vital signs continue to remain consistent and stable.

"We believe in our son’s strength and determination, we see the minor improvement as an indication of him starting to turn the tide in his favour, we just need him to do it a little quicker.

"Doctors continue to monitor and change the bandages when necessary and confirm that the fractures are multiple and severe. Additional surgeries will be required once Juan Manuel’s lungs improve to a state that it is safe for doctors to proceed."#

The Correa family went on to thank fans for their messages of support for JM.

"We would like to thank each and every person that has called, text, sent emails and reached out on social media. We have received and read or continue to read and show all the messages to Juan Manuel," the family said.

"Your messages help him to fight and never give up. This will be the biggest single motivator for Juan Manuel when he regains consciousness.

"We invite fans and friends to continue to send supportive messages via social media or to Info@JMCorrea.com. Again, thank you for your support."
