Maria del Villota have reappeared after her terrible accident back in July 3rd.
She have told the press that because of the lost of her right eye her life have changed dramatically. Maria said that she remember everything about the accident and also talked about her reaction when the doctor told her she would lost her eye. At first she was very disappointed because that will meant losing any opportunity to keep driving for the Marussia F1 team but, Maria have had some reflection time and realized that she saved her life and have many reasons why to be grateful.
And indeed Maria has to be very grateful because the next image is from a 3D model of her skull with the damages that the collision caused her, you can see how the side of her right eye was smashed even though she was wearing her helmet. As I’ve said in a past post about the dangers of open wheelers, this is a risk that unfortunately these drivers have to take while the FIA come up with a solution for this mayor threat.
