Maria de Villota conscious and undergoing further assessment following testing crash
The Marussia team has confirmed that Maria de Villota is conscious in hospital following her accident during a straight-line test at Duxton Airfield this morning [Tuesday].

The Spaniard was left with injuries described as 'life-threatening' following the accident, when she was involved in a collision with a team truck as she returned to a make-shift pit area after her first run at the wheel of the MR-01.

Having been transferred to hospital for further treatment, the 32-year-old is now reported to be conscious and undergoing further assessments, with more news to be released once those assessments have been completed.

“Further to the accident involving the Marussia F1 Team's Test Driver Maria De Villota this morning, the team can confirm that Maria was transferred by ambulance from Duxford Airfield, where the accident happened, to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge,” the latest statement from the team said.

“Since Maria's arrival at the hospital at approximately 10:45 this morning, she has been receiving the best medical attention possible at the hospital, which is the region's major trauma centre. Maria is conscious and medical assessments are ongoing. The team will await the outcome of these assessments before providing further comment.

“The team's first priority at this time is Maria and her family.”

Great news, couldn't quite believe it when I read it this morning. Also why has someone gone down all the comments and disagreed. Why would anyone do that?
