Correa revealed why he couldn't avoid colliding with the tragically deceased Hubert
Juan Manuel Correa has revealed new details about the accident at the Spa-Francorchamps Formula 2 race that claimed the life of Anthoine Hubert in August.
The racers collided at the exit of Raidillon after Hubert's car bounced off the guardrail.
In an interview with Mundo Sport, Correa explained that he had driven over the wreckage of Gulian Alesi's car just before the collision.
“As I drove through Eau Rouge, I ran into the wreckage of Alesia's car, which then got stuck under the front wheels. I could only drive straight and, unfortunately, Hubert found himself there. “
The racer also participated in the preparation of the next FIE report on the causes of the accident. ”
Everything is clear. I had meetings with the FIO where we found out that this was an extremely unfortunate set of circumstances. What I said about the event that I experienced coincides with the report. But it's over, no investigation will change the fact that it all happened. “
According to Correa, the impact strength was measured at 70. The young racer suffered severe injuries to his right leg, and his rehabilitation is expected to last one year.
“Unfortunately, I will most likely never fully recover, but my foot will never be as it used to be. But I will do my best to get back on the accelerator pedal. “
