Susie Wolff will be part of Williams’ driver lineup for the upcoming test at Barcelona starting on Thursday.
The 32 year-old became the first woman to take part in an F1 weekend for more than twenty years in 2014, and her role within the Grove squad has been expanded to test driver alongside Alex Lynn for 2015, supporting regular drivers Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa.
This will include two test days and more Friday practice runs on race weekends, but also means she’ll be the first one to drive the new FW37 round the Circuit de Catalunya on Thursday. Bottas will then take over the car on Friday, followed by Massa on the Saturday, and then on Sunday both race drivers share testing duties for the last day.
The team’s schedule for the third and final pre-season test, also at Barcelona, is yet to be confirmed.
