Maria de Villota has been released from hospital following her latest operation at the end of last month.
De Villota underwent a seven-hour operation in Madrid in late November. She is expected to have one more surgery after her serious accident earlier this year. The final operation will take place once she has recovered from her latest procedure.
On Monday, de Villota was named "Driver of the Year" by Car & Driver magazine. Her family collected the award on her behalf.
