Wolff says wife Susie was good enough for F1 race seat
Mercedes F1 chief Toto Wolff says his wife Susie was good enough to race with a mid-pack Formula 1 team.
Wolff was speaking for the first time since Susie Wolff decided to give up her position as a Williams test driver, after she acknowledged that she will never get to race in F1.
“As a husband, I’m sorry that she did not get the chance, as I am convinced that she is good enough for a good mid-table team,” said Wolff.
“And as part of the F1 world it would have been good for F1 to have a woman in the race, because even media that has nothing to do with motor sport would have been interested,” he added.
“So it is a missed opportunity. But together as a family I don’t notice any difference now that she has made this decision. She is at peace with herself and I can tell you one thing: girls are much tougher than boys,” Wolff concluded.
