Wolff targets young driver test with Williams
10 April 2013 – Susie Wolff has set her sights on taking part in the Young Driver test with Williams this season. The 30-year-old Scot, who drove a Formula 1 car for the first time at Silverstone last October, holds a development role with the Grove-based squad.
"I'm on a fantastic path but I don't look too far ahead," Wolff, wife of Mercedes Executive Director Toto, told BBC Sport. "I look at each small step. Now it's about doing the young drivers days and proving I'm quick enough - and then getting a super licence."
Following the potential test, which was last year run on three separate occasions - at Silverstone, Magny-Cours and the Yas Marina Circuit - for teams with differing plans, Wolff says she will then apply for a Super Licence, which is required to contest races.
"Once I've done the test, I'll apply for a Super Licence and then I've got to get myself close enough and hope I get the opportunity for a race seat," she added. "I would have enough mileage [for the licence] already but there's no point in doing that just now because it's unrealistic for me to get a race seat yet. I'm not going to jump steps."
Wolff joined Williams in April 2012, having been a regular in Germany's DTM series.
