    Marussia test driver fighting for life after testing accident

    Full info in link below but it seems that while testing the Marussia test driving Maria De Villota has been involved in a low speed but serious accident and is now fighting for life. Sounds like a strange accident but none the less, fingers crossed she recovers.

    Yes, thoughts are with her and the team. Hope she recovers soon.

    And since nobody seems to have a solid handle on what actually happened, I'm expecting a shitstorm to begin with people carrying on that women shouldn't be able to drive F1 cars, yada yada yada and all that bullshit.

    Heard about it today at work, crazy.
    Hope she gets better
    As for what happened, doubt it was her fault apparent it just accelerated by itself into the truck, maybe the throttle got stuck open?
