Maria de Villota

Postby Mayfly » Fri Oct 11, 2013 8:48 am

Maria de Villota reserve F1 test driver has been found dead in a hotel room in Spain.

She lost an eye and suffered sever brain injury after a crash about 18mths ago but had returned to driving competing in the Spanish F3 and Daytona 24 race.

Very sad she was only 33.
In memory of a very dear friend - Mike Pearson

Very fond memories of Robbie Gilvary - DTs 1st Vulcan Captain who taught DT all he knew.

I see they said she had died of natural causes and have now linked it to the injuries sustained in the accident.
