María de Villota's manager, Mark Blundell, believes that the Spaniard would have been "the next female Formula One driver".
De Villota was found dead in a hotel room in Seville earlier this morning.
The 33-year-old's racing career was cut tragically short when she lost an eye in an accident at Cambridgeshire's Duxford Aerodrome last year.
However, Blundell believes that De Villota had the talent to become the first female driver to enter the Formula One World Championship since Giovanna Amati back in 1992.
