Juan Manuel Correa: My words about the FIA ​​were taken out of context

February 1, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Ecuadorian driver Juan Manuel Correa found it necessary to refute his words from a recent interview in which he allegedly accused the FIA ​​of inaction in the first days after the accident in Spa.

“Many of the statements from the article that I attributed to me are taken out of context or simply incorrect,” Correa told Instagram. – I have great respect for journalists who cover motorsport and support the racers, but at the same time I can not allow such things to remain in history, and therefore I want to contact directly.

Firstly, I have not formed a definite opinion about whether there was a careless attitude on the part of officials. As far as I know, the investigation is still ongoing, and I am waiting for the FIA ​​final report on the incident in Spa. I must admit, I am a little surprised that it takes so long to prepare it, but I am sure that in the end it will be made public. Then I will study it, compare it with my experience and form a full and balanced opinion.

Secondly, I did not blame anyone for anything. I just noted the facts related to the chain of events after the accident, to how my family and I survived this test, as well as the lessons that we all must learn from this tragic event.

To prevent such misunderstandings in the future, I will refrain from public comments regarding the incident before I read the full FIA report. ”
