Susie Wolff Hungry to Earn a Place in Formula One
GRANOLLERS, Spain (AP) — Susie Wolff is sure that she is good enough to start a Formula One race, even if her chances are slim.
The 32-year-old British driver, who is a development driver for Williams this season, placed 14th in Friday's first practice session at the Spanish Grand Prix.
She will also do one day of post-race testing following next month's Austrian GP and will run in the first practice at the British GP in July.
Wolff says "I 100 percent feel that a woman can compete at this level."
Still, with Adrian Sutil ahead of her as Williams' reserve driver, Wolff knows she has a tough task ahead before becoming the first female racer to compete in a race since Lella Lombardi in 1976.
