Violence and suicide appears to be unlikely, but regardless, a very sad day indeed. RIP Maria.

A sad end to an inspiring life. Heartbreaking stuff, especially since she had to work so hard to get back to a real good quality of life.

Rest in Peace, Maria. Sad

Heartbreaking news, especially since she was doing some awesome stuff for aspiring female drivers. What an absolute shame.

Maria de Villota deserved a lot more than the luck she's had with having that freak accident she had last year. It's really sad to hear this happen.

R.I.P., Maria.
