26 April, 2013
Formula 1 testing has resumed at the Duxford airfield in Cambridgeshire, in the United Kingdom, fot the first time since Maria de Villota’s serious accident last year.
There has been no Formula 1 running at the Imperial War Museum facility since De Villota accident, in which she lost an eye, after a freak crash whilst testing for Marussia last July.
But an unnamed team was in action on the runway at Duxford on Friday, and the local Haverhill Echo newspaper said more test days are booked for next Wednesday and also in May, June and August.
On Friday, Spaniard de Villota said in Madrid that she thinks Fernando Alonso will win this year’s world championship.
“Soon everything will line up for him and he will not have so much bad luck; for me he is the most complete driver on the grid — the perfect combination of talent, passion and work,” she is quoted by the EFE news agency.
