why would Maria di Villota not be considered, just because she has no F1 experience? More likely because she's a woman, I think it would be the ideal opportunity to give her a go, she couldn't do much worse than the HRT's anyway (I bet she could beat Karthikeyan) and might actually surprise some people. F1 needs to move away from a male only sport in my opinion.

@Owen Hamilton

She doesn't have the required super license needed to race in F1. This is nothing to do with gender. Asking why a team would have a reserve driver who cannot race is another question altogether?

She was supposed to be test driver and not reserve AFAIK, now why don't Marussia have an actual reserve driver who actually gets to drive the car from time to time is indeed a question - even if that driver was to be Maria...

Its not the first Time a F1 driver's gone down with a tummy bug. As they are literally eating at restaurants (however posh they are) more or less all the time- the risk of eating contaminated food has to rise at some stage
