Susie Wolff says she would be pleased to 'go out in a solid way' if her outing in first free practice for the British Grand Prix turns out to be her swansong in an F1 car.

The Williams Martini reserve driver completed the second of her two planned FP1 outings in 2015, setting the 13th fastest time, eight tenths adrift of experienced team-mate Felipe Massa.

A turnaround in fortunes compared with last year when her much anticipated outing was scuppered by early technical issues, Wolff nonetheless completed a full 19 laps and was pleased with the progress made, even if she felt she could have gone quicker.

"I wanted to go out there and show what I could do," she said. "I was highly motivated. The team did a really good job of getting me ready, [but] it is always about finding that balance because it is Valtteri's car, if anything happens to that car it is huge for his race weekend so you really have to be calculated in your approach. Immediately in the car it felt good.

"It's a fast track, the first couple of laps it took a bit of time to get up to speed in the fast stuff, but unfortunately on my second run I had a little moment through Becketts and lost a good few tenths. Overall, I think it has been positive."

With no further outings planned in 2015 and no decision taken on her role in the team for 2016, though Wolff admits it is 'worrying' her future isn't certain, she is pleased to go out strongly if that proves to be the case.

"I am happy to have gone out in a solid way, to have finished strong in the session. Let's see what comes. This is an environment that changes very quickly, but apart from that I am definitely thankful for the opportunity to go out in an F1 grand prix weekend and gave all I could to show what I was capable of. It is a bit worrying that there is nothing else planned, but only when I think I have no chances left will I look for something else."
