De Villota could return to Spain this week

It has been reported that Maria de Villota could leave Addenbrooke’s hospital in the UK and return to Spain by the end of the week.

The 32 year old Spaniard has been in hospital since losing her right eye after a horror accident at Duxford airfield early last week. De Villota’s sister Isabel said on Monday that Maria has moved out of the intensive care unit, after Marussia chief John Booth revealed she had emerged from an artificial coma to speak to her family.

Auto Motor und Sport reported: “Except for the blindness in her right eye, the chances are good that there is no (other) permanent damage.”

De Villota has had two operations at Addenbrook’s, and the German publication added: “If there are no further complications, de Villota could return to her native Spain late this week.”
