Susie Wolff to continue as Williams development driver
Grove (England), Jan 29 : The Williams Formula 1 Team has confirmed that Development Driver Susie Wolff will be continuing her role with the team during the 2013 season.
Susie joined Williams in April 2012 and has played a valuable role in helping to develop the Williams-Renault FW34 and FW35.
"Susie's level of involvement will increase during the 2013 season, with an increased programme in the team's simulator combined with a greater level of in-car testing," said the team in a statement.
Susie will be the first to get behind the wheel of the FW35 when she drives the car at Idiada next month, and will do the majority of aerodynamic testing this season. Prior to joining Williams, the Scot spent seven seasons driving in DTM and was twice nominated for the prestigious BRDC Young Driver of the Year Award.
Speaking about her role with the team, Susie said: "I really enjoy my time working with Williams and feel very much at home here. Last year was a valuable experience and I certainly feel that I've developed a lot as a driver. Increasing my role this year will further this progression and I can't wait to get behind the wheel of the FW35 for the first time next month."
