Susie Wolff will become the first woman in 22 years to drive in a Formula One grand prix weekend after Williams said the Scot would be on track for them in two free practice sessions later this year. The 31-year-old wife of Mercedes motorsport head Toto Wolff, a former Williams executive director, will remain as their development driver in an expanded role that will include two Friday outings. Williams did not say which race weekends Wolff would be appearing at. [Source]
