Susie Wolff: F1 test driver for Williams

Susie Wolff admits expecting to land a race seat for 2015 is “not realistic”.

After breaking down at Silverstone two weeks ago, the 31-year-old Scot enjoyed a bit more track time ahead of the German grand prix on Friday at the wheel of Valtteri Bottas’ Williams.

Even she does not deny the PR factor in her two race weekend appearances this year, nor the fact that her husband – Williams co-owner and Mercedes chief Toto Wolff – has helped her on her way.

Even so, Wolff was on the pace at Hockenheim, lapping just two tenths off Felipe Massa’s best time.

But she will not be reappearing on any other Friday mornings in 2014, the Grove based team has confirmed.

So the “million dollar question” – as Wolff herself puts it – is what comes next for potentially F1’s first female race driver for more than two decades?

She admits a 2015 seat with Williams is a long shot.

“Given the performances of Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas,” fluent German speaker Wolff is quoted by the Austrian press agency APA, “that is not realistic.”
