Juan Manuel Correa has taken a significant step in his comeback by returning to the track for the first time since his crash with Anthoine Hubert at Spa Francorchamps in 2019.

Following the incident at the start of the F2 feature race at the Belgian Grand Prix that killed Hubert, Correa initially spent two weeks in a coma and required 26 surgeries for injuries to his lungs, spine and legs.

At the beginning of February, the Ecuadorian-American announced he is to return to racing this year in Formula 3 with ART, the team that took George Russell to the title in 2017 when the series was then known as GP3.

Stepping up preparations for his return, Correa took to the track in a single-seater car on Monday for the first time since his accident.
