Juan Manuel Correa has undergone surgery after suffering fractures to both legs and a spinal injury in the crash which cost Anthoine Hubert his life in Formula 2's Belgium feature race.
Correa crashed into Hubert at high speed at Spa-Francorchamps, causing significant damage to his Sauber Junior Team car and leaving the Frenchman's Arden in pieces.
Both were taken to hospital, where Correa remains in a stable condition, but Hubert was pronounced dead at 18:35 local time.
"Today, American Juan Manuel Correa was involved in a scary incident at the Belgium Grand Prix at the Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium," a statement read.
