Juan Manuel Correa’s condition has shown signs of improvement, though he remains on life support in an induced coma in a specialist intensive care unit in the United Kingdom.

The 20-year-old sustained severe injuries in the Formula 2 accident that claimed the life of Anthoine Hubert at Spa-Francorchamps on August 30.

Correa was transferred from Belgium to a specialist intensive care unit in London, and was placed into a medically-induced coma upon his arrival after falling into acute respiratory failure.

On Tuesday night, the Correa family issued the latest statement on his condition, revealing that his lungs have “gradually recovered”.

“Juan Manuel Correa remains in the Intensive Care Unit in a state of induced coma,” the statement read.

“Although his lungs have gradually recovered, his respiratory functions continue to be assisted by ECMO and a breathing ventilator.”

Correa suffered fractures to both of his legs in the high-speed crash and his family confirmed his leg injuries “remain an important concern”, adding he will “undergo immediate surgery once his lungs are strong enough to withstand the procedure”.
