Marussia confirmed that their test driver Maria de Villota conscious and medical tests are continuing at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge after her testing crash on Tuesday morning.

Maria was quickly admitted to the hospital earlier in the day after an accident shortly after her first run for the team at a straight-line aerodynamic test at Duxford Airfield.

Observer are reports that, following slowing down as she prepared to come back to the provisional pit awning, her car lurched towards the rear of a team transporter, and collided with a tail-lift at the rear of the truck.

Marussia F1 team published a report on Tuesday afternoon representing that her life was not in danger, but saying that it was too early to assess the extent of her injuries.

“Since Maria’s arrival at the hospital at approximately 10.45am this morning, she has been receiving the best medical attention possible at the hospital, which is the region’s major trauma centre,” said the statement.

“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.”

Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso wrote on Twitter: “I just got home and found out [about] Maria’s accident, we called the family and hopefully we will know more soon! All my energy with you!”

Lewis Hamilton added in his Twitter: Just heard about Maria’s terrible accident at Duxford. I hope she pulls through. My thoughts and prayers are with her family at this time.

Jenson Button wrote: “Terrible accident for Maria de Villota, Marussia F1 team test driver. My thoughts are with Maria and her family at this very difficult time.”

Caterham’s Heikki Kovalanain also wrote: Heard about Maria’s freak test accident with Marussia, I hope she makes recovery and all is going to be good…
