Why Correa's return is the feel-good story racing needed

By:

Juan Manuel Correa has had a long road to recovery from that horrific day at Spa in 2019. ART's decision to give him his race return in FIA Formula 3 in 2021 is a victory in itself, but his determination will surely - in time - have him fighting for bigger things

Motorsport has been long overdue a feel-good story amid a tough 2020, and junior series veteran team ART has duly delivered. The French squad has handed a return to racing for Juan Manuel Correa in FIA Formula 3, after a season and a half out of action - a legacy of the horrendous Spa-Francorchamps Formula 2 feature race accident in 2019 that took Anthoine Hubert's life.

The incident at Eau Rouge does not bear thinking about, even after time has created some semblance of distance to it, and Hubert's death and Correa's critical state rocked the motorsporting fraternity to the core. The American's subsequent recuperation to walk again, then, has been nothing short of miraculous.
