London: Formula One test driver Maria de Villota, who suffered multiple injuries in a crash during testing in Cambridgeshire, was stated to be stable.
According to reports, Maria, who was undergoing further medical tests at Addenbrooke`s Hospital in Cambridge, was conscious and spoke to her father and sister.
Earlier on Tuesday, she sustained life-threatening injuries in a crash during testing in Cambridgeshire, the Marussia team and local ambulance services had said on Tuesday.
De Villota was due to carry out a straight-line aerodynamics test at Duxford airfield, and hit a team vehicle after an installation lap, Marussia said.
"A woman has sustained life threatening injuries and following treatment at the scene by paramedics, she has been taken to Addenbrookes Hospital for further care," Gary Sanderson, a spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service, had said in a website statement.
De Villota, 32, from Spain, was testing the car for the first time since joining Marussia in March.
"The accident happened at the end of her first installation run and involved an impact with the team`s support truck," Marussia had said on the team website.
"Maria has been transferred to hospital. Once her medical condition has been assessed a further statement will be issued."
