Maria De Villota improving, says Marussia

Marussia has issued a positive update on the condition of Maria de Villota, some eight days after her accident at Duxford.

The team says that her condition is improving, and that she is no longer under sedation.

A statement said: “Following two successful surgical procedures in the days following the accident, last Saturday the medical team at Addenbrooke’s Hospital began to gradually reduce the level of Maria’s sedation. By Sunday morning, Maria was awake and able to speak to her family, which provided a very important – albeit early – indication that there were positive signs for Maria’s recovery.

“Since that time, Maria has been making small but significant steps. She was moved out of the Neurological Critical Care Unit on Monday and is no longer receiving sedation. Her family remain by her side and she is communicating freely with them and the medical team. Medical assessments are ongoing to monitor Maria’s improving condition.”

  1. That’s a relief. I watched Senna the other night, and losing drivers is not really something I’m looking forward to anymore
