Not what I want to come back to…
Maria de Villota was testing Marussia upgrades during a testing session. While returning to the pits, the car suddenly accelerated into the transporter truck that brought the car to the Duxford airfield.
Emergency services were called the the scene. A BBC reporter eyewitness said her helmet took the brunt of the impact.
Emergency services also have said the injuries are life-threatening.
Marussia has released a statement that Villota was taken to a hospital, and they will update on her condition when further details are known.
This story will of course be updated then too.
Best wishes, Maria, everyone is thinking of you. Perhaps the douchebags who think this is a time to make sexist remarks aren’t, but those of us sending you our love and prayers more than make up for them.
I have yet to sleep
