The Formula 1 community pays its respects to Maria de Villota, who passed away Friday morning at the age of 33.
Her family led the tribute, stating: “Dear friends. Maria has left us. She had to go to heaven like all angels.
“We are thankful to God for the extra year and a half that he left her with us,” the de Villota family said, referencing a 2012 testing crash which left her with severe head injuries and resulted in the loss of her right eye.
