Maria de Villota: F1 reserve driver found dead in Seville

Sad news. Especially after what she had gone through.

Such a shame.

They're saying it's natural causes but i wouldn't be surprised if it were a product of the crash she had. Not many people die naturally at the age of 33.

A great shame. It can't have been easy to stick around F1 after the accident so she obviously had some drive.

This is terrible news, how very sad for someone to die so young. I hope this doesn't put off any potential future women motorsports drivers, regardless of the cause of death.
