Marussia test driver Maria De Villota is conscious after suffering what were initially described as "life-threatening injuries" in a test crash earlier today.
The 32-year-old Spaniard crashed into a support truck and it is understood she has been receiving treatment for head and face injuries.
"Maria is conscious and medical assessments are ongoing. The team will await the outcome of these assessments before providing further comment. The team's first priority at this time is Maria and her family."
