Wolff to take part in two practice sessions
24 February 2014 – Williams has confirmed that Susie Wolff will continue as the team's development driver for the 2014 Formula 1 season in an expanded role that will see her take part in two opening practice sessions.
Wolff, who joined the Grove-based outfit in early 2012, is to maintain her simulator presence to aid with the development of the FW36 and will become the first woman in over two decades to drive in a Grand Prix session.
Wolff's free practice outings are set to come at the British and German Grands Prix in July.
"I'm grateful for the support and belief Williams continue to show in me and 2014 promises to be a very important milestone in my career," said Wolff. "My responsibilities within the team have steadily increased as I have proved myself, culminating in the opportunity to test the car at Silverstone and conduct straight line tests last season.
"Competing in two Free Practice 1 sessions, alongside an additional full test day this season will be a big step and I am looking forward to the opportunity to get behind the wheel of the FW36 on a Grand Prix weekend.
"It's a challenge that I will relish and it will be a great chance for me to continue assisting the team."
Last week, Williams confirmed Brazilian youngster Felipe Nasr as its new test and reserve driver.
