share the passion for the Motorsport – and its shadow sides. This week they shared a hospital bed. Billy Monger and Juan Manuel Correa rays have posted a picture which shows you in the best of moods, your faces, while you squat in easier rear position on top of the mattress with the white reference. A happy get-together with like-minded 20-Year-old. It is not so long ago, there would have been stolen from them by their great Passion almost life. From Mongers short legs protrude two prostheses, the right leg Correas inserted into a metal construct that extends up to the knee. Monger has left his lower leg in a nasty accident in the British formula 4 in April 2017. He was in the Donington Park just to let opponent to opponent behind a standing car in front of him popped up and it crashed. He was seriously injured but survived. The legs couldn't be saved.
Last day in the hospital for me and @BillyMonger came to visit ???? pic.twitter.com/3ihwmufqwQ— JM Correa (@JMCorrea__) October 31, 2019
Correas limb could be repaired in a 17-hour surgery together. "Last day in the hospital for me," is above the picture of the two posted. The Junior of the Clean team flew back home on Friday, he landed in Miami, the rehab will take a long time. Ten months, maybe a year, the Ecuador-born US-Americans will fight to return to normal and running. Currently, he's struggling with a Walker.

Correa slams in Hubert – the Frenchman dies
Correa has been through some turbulent weeks and months. It is the race weekend at Spa-Francorchamps. Just Charles Leclerc, Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton have a talk after the Qualifying session of the formula 1 about their prospects in the race, as the pilots of formula 2 to this 31. To start in August your first race. In round 2, shortly after the high speed curve of Eau Rouge, it backfires horribly, car parts fly through the air, the traffic lights on Red, the race was stopped, no restart. Ambulance the Piste turf high, Anthoine Hubert, 22-year-old Frenchman's life is in danger. Correas car has dismantled the cars for parts. The survival cell does not provide enough protection to at 18:35, Hubert is declared dead.
"I see things now with different eyes and think differently about life."Juan Manuel Correa
It is what Correa charged in addition to the own affliction especially. Five weeks later, he logs on for the first time: "I have never said it publicly, but I would like to Express to the family of Hubert, my deepest condolences. It was a shock that such an accident happened. Don't you think that such a thing can really happen, and certainly not yourself. Until it happens, then."
Correa had no chance in his car, which was at over 200 km/h to the floor. Giuliano Alesi, son of former formula 1 driver Jean Alesi, was caught with a puncture on the track and then back slid. The Swiss Ralph Boschung slowed, Hubert touched the rear, the front wing ripped off, he slammed right into the runway limit, hurled back from there – Correa came careening in, the parts flew. It is a fraction of a second goods. You will accompany him for a lifetime.
respiratory failure, respiratory arrest
"The last couple of weeks are extremely hard, physically and mentally," said Correa in his first word message from London, where he had been brought for further investigation and treatment. After his arrival in the hospital for an acute lung was diagnosed with a failure, he suffered a respiratory arrest and had to be respirated, and was put into an artificial coma. Only at the end of September, the 17-hour Operation could be carried out, for the had decided to Correa, to avoid Amputation of the right leg.

In the social media, he wrote: "all of This has changed my life. I see things now with different eyes and think differently about life. It was an experience that has changed my life." If he is so healthy, that he may rise again in a Cockpit, is uncertain.
That a continuation of the career itself may be without legs, has proved Correas visitors Billy Monger for a long time. Still in that hospital bed, he trained his left Arm, in order to have enough power for a hand clutch. A year after the accident, he started in a modified car in the British formula 3, operated gearbox and clutch with the left Hand, slowed down with one of his prostheses. Last may, he won the formula 3 race on the legendary circuit of Pau.
Monger dreams and speaks of a future in formula 1. So far, Correa is not yet. Monger is likely to have given to him with his story plenty of power for the long way back.
