I make this comment in the knowledge that Susie is a superior driver than I, and that she has proven herself to be a reasonable racing driver. She will never race in F1, a couple of seasons tugging around at the back of the DTM and driving Football Single Seaters does not qualify you to be an F1 Race Driver. By the same token doing a few straight line tests and a few promo laps at moderate pace do not qualify you to race in F1 either. The fact is that despite the very public denial the, sole reason that they are including Susie on the team is that her husband is Toto Wolff and he owns 40% of Williams which means what he says goes. Let us see what happens when he eventually sells his stake now that he is the new boss man at Mercedes ! Why don't they place her in a top GP2 or World Series Team with the money instead and give her the chance to prove her worth ? If she could finish 3rd or higher in either championship I would be inclined to take her seriously.
