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

F80P3969
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.

Frank Williams in Abu Dhabi

Williams on Facebook:

Everyone pay attention! Sir Frank Williams is attending the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix this weekend – his first race since Monza at the beginning of September. While in the Middle East, he’s fitting in a visit to the Williams Technology Centre in Qatar, but that shouldn’t come as a surprise. Frank is the master of killing two birds with one stone; when he comes to the last couple of races in Austin and Brazil, he’s going to fit in even more business trips between the two races. Frank might be 70, but he hasn’t slowed down a jot.
