LONDON, Sept 3 (Reuters) - American-Ecuadorian Formula Two racer Juan Manuel Correa is being moved to intensive care in Britain after being injured in an accident that killed French driver Anthoine Hubert at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium last weekend.

The 20-year-old suffered a spinal injury and fractures to his legs in Saturday's horrific crash during the support race for the Belgian Formula One Grand Prix.

"Juan Manuel Correa will be transferred today (to) a specialised ICU located in the United Kingdom," a statement issued by his media team said on Tuesday.
