Grove, England:

Susie Wolff will continue her role as a development driver for the Williams Formula One team this season.

Wolff joined Williams last April and helped develop the Williams-Renault FW34 and FW35. Williams said in a statement on Monday that her level of in-car testing will increase this season. The Scottish driver will be the first to get behind the wheel of the FW35 next month, and will do the majority of aerodynamic testing.
