No action taken against Marussia after De Villota investigation

Health and Safety Executive had been looking into 2012 testing crash

No action will be taken against Manor Marussia after an investigation into Maria de Villota’s testing accident, the Health and Safety Executive confirmed.

The Spaniard crashed into a support truck at Duxford Airfield in Cambridgeshire during testing in July 2012 and lost her right eye.

De Villota died in Seville in October 2013, aged 33, "as a consequence of the neurological injuries she suffered", her family said at the time.

A Marussia investigation at the time concluded there was no issue with the car and a subsequent HSE investigation has now concluded.

A spokesman for HSE said: "After an investigation into the incident it has been decided no enforcement action will be taken."

Manor GP have so far not commented on the conclusion of the HSE's investigation.
