Car not to blame for De Villota accident: Marussia
Banbury (England): The Marussia Formula One team says the accident that caused one of its test drivers to lose an eye wasn`t the fault of the car involved.
Maria de Villota was driving a F1 car for only the fourth time - and first for Marussia - when she hit a support truck during a straight-line exercise near an airfield in England on July 3.
De Villota lost her right eye in sustaining serious facial and head injuries.
Marussia has completed its probe into the crash, with team principal John Booth saying in a statement that "our internal investigation exclude the car as a factor in the accident."
The 32-year-old De Villota has undergone two operations and is beginning to recover.
