Mar.6 (GMM) Maria de Villota has been signed up as an expert pundit for Spanish television Antena 3's coverage of the 2013 Formula One season.

The Spaniard lost an eye in a near-fatal testing crash whilst serving as a Marussia test driver last year, but has made a good recovery.

"Last week they gave me permission to return to driving," said the 32-year-old.

"The distances I can already calculate quite well and it feels like nothing ever happened."

Following Antena 3's launch of its 2013 coverage, Spanish reports said de Villota will work as an expert pundit, particularly on a segment called 'Safety Car'.

Ferrari reserve driver Pedro de la Rosa will also be a commentator for the 2013 coverage.
