HSE awaits de Villota findings
Any possible links between Maria de Villota's death and injuries she suffered in an accident last year would be examined, according to the HSE.
The 33-year-old Spaniard has been found dead in a hotel room in Seville. Madrid police said it was being treated as a "natural death".
De Villota was test driving for the Marussia team at Duxford, Cambridgeshire, on July 3 last year when she was involved in a freak accident in which her car, which was travelling at up to 40mph, ran into a stationary service vehicle.
She lost her right eye as a result and required multiple operations to repair the damage to her face and skull.
A Health and Safety Executive spokeswoman said an investigation launched immediately after the accident was continuing and any post-mortem findings and other developments following her death would be considered.
She added: "We don't know if there is a link between her injuries and her subsequent death but we would expect to be kept informed of any new evidence."
It is understood De Villota was on a tour promoting her autobiography - Life Is A Gift - when she was discovered dead.
A spokeswoman for Madrid police said: "We are assuming it was a natural death, but we cannot confirm anything."
Despite spending a month in hospital following the Duxford Aerodrome incident, De Villota rebuilt her life in what was seen by many as a miracle recovery.
The accident happened during straight-line testing and eyewitnesses reported seeing her car suddenly accelerate.
Marussia later said it had carried out an internal investigation and was satisfied that the car was not at fault.
Although she lost her right eye, she was said to have made a full recovery from injuries to her face and skull.
