A SPANISH F1 test driver is continuing her recovery in hospital after losing an eye in a crash last week.
Maria de Villota sustained life-threatening head injuries in the accident, which occurred after she hit a support truck during testing at Duxford Airfield in Cambridgeshire.
The 32-year-old Marussia driver was in a critical condition after undergoing extensive surgery but is now described as serious but stable.
The Madrid born driver only took up her role as a test driver for the F1 team in April, as reported by the Olive Press.
