De Villota awake and recovering
F1 CAREER OVER? Marussia driver Maria de Villota is recovering from her horror crash though it will be months before she can even consider returning to the track.
Marussia team boss John Booth had some good news to report on Maria de Villota's improving condition.
It has changed from a "critical" to "serious" since her latest head and facial surgery, before which she was put into an artificial coma.
Booth said at the 2012 British F1 GP on Sunday that the team's test driver, who lost her right eye through a horror crash during testing at Duxford airfield in the UK, was now awake "and "alking with her family".
He said that's "great news". Wheels24 reckons it is, too.
