Williams F1 is not planning any further significant test sessions for development driver Susie Wolff in the immediate future.

The famous British team’s female reserve driver impressed both Williams and the wider Formula 1 world with her first real circuit test in the 2013 car recently at Silverstone.

“She did a good job, with no mistakes and making good progress with the new tyres,” Williams’ chief engineer Xevi Pujolar is quoted by Brazil’s Globo Esporte.

“But we are not considering the possibility of regular tests for Susie at this point,” he insisted, admitting that he was also talking about potential running on Friday mornings at grands prix.

“The work we did at Silverstone is different to what we do on a race weekend, so we are not considering that,” added Pujolar.

Wolff, 30, is therefore leaving her plans for the future open.

“We have two great drivers,” she said, referring to Pastor Maldonado and Valtteri Bottas, “so it is not possible to drive on Fridays this season.

“But we’ll see. I’m not the type of person who likes to sit still,” added Wolff.

“I always like to be developing myself constantly. So I’ll think about what is the right next step for me.” (GMM)
