Track return for Maria de Villota
Wednesday 27 February 2013
Formula One test driver Maria de Villota has been cleared to drive for the first time since losing her right eye in a crash.
The Spanish driver suffered serious head and facial injuries in an accident last July when testing for Marussia for the first time in Cambridgeshire.
"Very busy days take their toll, but I am calm because I know everything is going well," said the daughter of former Formula One driver Emilio de Villota.
