Final update on Maria de Villota's Marussia testing crash

The Marussia team has confirmed that Maria is conscious while ESPN tweeted earlier that some of the Spanish press had said that she was awake and talking with her family.

The Marussia statement says:

Further to the accident involving the Marussia F1 Team's Test Driver Maria De Villota this morning, the team can confirm that Maria was transferred by ambulance from Duxford Airfield, where the accident happened, to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.
"Since Maria's arrival at the hospital at approximately 10.45hrs this morning, she has been receiving the best medical attention possible at the hospital, which is the region's major trauma centre. 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.

We wish her the best and a speedy recovery
