Banbury, England:

The Marussia Formula One team says test driver Maria de Villota has returned home to Spain after the accident in which she lost her right eye.

De Villota was in a hospital for more than two weeks and had two operations after suffering severe head and facial injuries when she crashed into a team truck during a test at an airfield in England on July 3.

Marussia said Saturday that the 32-year-old De Villota returned home Friday.

The Russian-owned team said she had made "significant progress" over the past two weeks and was well enough to go home. The team thanked the English hospital staff for the "remarkable care and attention" De Villota received.

Marussia race drivers Timo Glock and Charles Pic also wished De Villota well in her recovery.
