Motorsport has been long overdue a feelgood 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 recouperation to walk again, then, has been nothing short of miraculous.
But Correa's road to recovery has been long and arduous, thanks to the severity of the injuries he sustained. He suffered fractures in both legs, which he commented were "hanging by the skin" in multiple interviews following his accident. He also endured a spinal fracture, and was placed in an induced coma having contracted acute respiratory distress syndrome.
