JM back on the podium

Juan Manuel Correa scored his first FIA Formula 2 podium since 2019 in the Sprint Race for Round 7 of the 2024 season.

The American driver returned to the sport in 2023 following injuries he sustained during the crash that led to the death of Anthoine Hubert in Belgium almost five years ago.

His last podium appearance in F2 came at the Paul Ricard circuit in France, where he finished second to Hubert.

Asked what has kept him motivated on the journey back to the podium, the 24-year-old said it had always been his ambition to be on the track.

“My love for the sport and everything I sacrificed since I was a kid, its always been my passion to be here.

“I am someone who never backs down from a challenge,” he said.

Correa said he wouldn’t change the journey he’s had back to F2 and reaching this milestone moment, saying “It’s made me grow so much.”

“The adversity keeps me entertained in a way,” he said, saying he was ‘really happy’ to have reached the podium.
