F1 » Maria de Villota: 1980-2013

Monisha Kaltenborn: "If anybody represented strength and optimism, it was Maria. Her sudden death is a big loss to the motorsport world as she was an important ambassador for relaying important messages to the youth, and particularly girls that aspire to a career in motorsport. Maria was an example of someone who never gave up, she always had a smile on her face and we will dearly miss her."

Very devastating news. She was a very smart and motivating person. This is very concerning. I wonder if she had a stroke of some sort. Head/brain trauma are extremely complex. RIP Maria. You will be greatly missed.

How very very sad. I know it's not PC to say this, and quite frankly, I don't give a damn, but a woman's place is in the home, not behind the wheel of a racing car. Her horrendous injuries caused her untimely demise, poor girl. She was a victim of feminism.
RIP Maria.
