No HSE action against Manor over de Villota crash

Manor Grand Prix Racing will face no further action over the accident suffered by the late Maria de Villota in 2012.
The Health and Safety Executive has said no further action will be taken against the Manor Grand Prix Racing team following an investigation into the crash suffered by the late Maria de Villota.

de Vilota lost her right eye after the MR-01 F1 car she was driving struck a support truck during a test July 2012 at the Duxford Airfield. Though she went on to recover to be cleared to drive again in 2013, she died suddenly in October of that year as 'a consequence of the neurological injuries she suffered'.

With Manor – which was operating under Marussia banner at the time – ruling out the car as a factor in the accident in the immediate aftermath, the HSE's investigation has now come to a conclusion with the confirmation that no further action against the team will be necessary.

“The investigation is now complete and no enforcement action is being taken. Both the company [Manor] and the deceased persons family have been informed.”
