‘The Fastest Woman in the World’ to give rare glimpse into the world of F1

Scots Formula One driver Susie Wolff revealed that she will appear in a BBC documentary, THE FASTEST WOMAN IN THE WORLD, about her life and career as the only woman currently in F1.

Susie, 30, who is a development driver for Williams, made the announcement yesterday in Barcelona, Spain – where Williams unveiled the new FW35 car, by team mates Pastor Maldonado and Valtteri Bottas. In her role as development driver, Susie was the first to run the car last week ahead of the start of the season.

Directed by her award winning, BAFTA-nominated brother David Stoddart, 31, the no-holds-barred film will be broadcast as part of BBC Scotland’s spring schedule, and features appearances from Formula One race ace Lewis Hamilton and racing legend David Coulthard.


Valtteri Bottas RUNS the Bahrain Grand Prix!

Looks can be deceiving. Valtteri Bottas stands at just 1.73m and he’s very solid, but boy can the man run. He completed a lap of the 5.4km Sakhir circuit in 20m12s (the equivalent of 3m43s per km), which was nearly a minute faster than anyone else this weekend. If you don’t believe the lap time – and there are many runners from rival teams who don’t – you can ask our non-executive director Toto Wolff for proof; he was cycling while Valtteri ran and timed the lap himself (photo courtesy or Mr. Wolff!).
