Susie Wolff's development driver role has previously been limited to the simulator and straight line testing, but last week she was granted the opportunity to test alongside other cars and drivers at Silverstone.

With a single day of running, and 89 laps completed, Susie managed to set the 9th fastest time of the day, and was about a second off the pace of her fellow Williams drivers. It was more about the experience for the ex-DTM racer, however, as Susie admitted it was a great opportunity for her.

"I had a fantastic chance from the team, they took the chance to put me in the car today. Many people said they were crazy, why were they wasting a day on me and they took that chance. I was happy that I could do a good job and pay them back for that."
