Maria was a Spanish racing driver. She suffered a severe accident during a test with a Formula One car from Marussia last season, in which she lost her right eye, and was still recovering from the injuries. Her ambitions were to get to the elite of world motorsport, but the accident ruined her pretentions. Since then, she gave speeches about transit security and life appreciation.
She was found dead in a hotel room today and the cause of death is not yet clarified.
