Maria De Villota said she believed the best was still to come as she spoke in public for the first time about the horrific training accident that led to her losing her right eye.

Dressed in a blue velvet jacket and dark jeans and with a blue eye-patch covering the eye socket, the Spanish Marussia F1 test driver recounted how she had woken after surgery in July to have the news broken to her. "It seemed like a miracle and you notice that in some ways you can see more than before."
