Juan Manuel Correa gets a welcome visitor!

F2 racer Juan Manuel Correa was all smiles when a very special visitor popped into his hospital room in London on Friday.

Correa is finally on the long road to recovery after the trying period that followed the horrendous crash at Spa that cost the life of fellow hopeful Anthoine Hubert.

The 20-year-old Sauber F1 junior underwent a final operation to his right leg earlier this week that should precede his return to Miami.

But before heading home, none other than Red Bull's Alex Albon checked in on his friend, and that was all Juan needed to boost his spirits another notch!
