Former F1 test driver found dead

The Formula One test driver María de Villota, who lost the sight in one eye after a crash in Cambridgeshire, has been found dead in a hotel room. Police are calling it a "natural death".

Last year, the Spanish driver crashed at Duxford Aerodrome, while test driving for the Marussia F-1 team.

The 33-year old's body was today discovered in Spain, where she was promoting her autobiography.
