Susie Wolff's promotion to test driver at Williams has seen her workload increase already. The team have confirmed she will be participating in pre-season testing in Barcelona next month, and also highlighting two opportunities she will have for Friday practice sessions during the season itself.

At the time of her step up, Susie said: "I’ll be using my position to work closely with Felipe and Valtteri to make sure that the FW37 builds on the strong performance shown by the FW36." Now she gets to put that ambition into practice, with a test day at the Circuit de Catalunya-Barcelona. The British driver scooped her own team by revealing the news yesterday, with a tweet: "6 weeks until my first test in the @williamsmartiniracing #FW37. Priority now is fitness and preparation. #strength #balance #coordination #necktraining."

She's also been posting plenty of videos and pictures of said training, involving a lot of balancing on gym balls and jumping over horizontal bars. Hopefully the efforts will pay off, and Susie will get plenty of laps under her belt ahead of the 2015 season.
