The Scot Susie Wolff asks the ‘million dollar question’ as to where her Formula 1 career goes from here. The 31-year-old Williams’ speedy successively completes Formula 1 practice session ahead of the German Grand Prix at Hockenheim yesterday.

When asked where she goes from here, Wolff replied: “That’s the mil­lion dollar question – what comes next?

“It’s difficult because it was only ever planned for me to do two practices one session this season, and that’s the second one done now.

“It’s tough, and that’s the big trouble in Formula One, to get in the car and get more time in the car. Time in the car counts for a lot, because the more laps you do the better it feels.”

During the British Grand Prix Friday practice one, Wolff made history, as she became the first woman for 22 years to take part in a race weekend, and only the sixth overall. However, technical issues meant that outing was short-lived.

Wolff seemed frustrated by a same issue yesterday on her first out-lap, but this time she luckily coasted back to the garage where the team fix a minor electrical problem.

She went on to complete 22 laps, finishing 15th on the timesheet, just a quarter of a second behind teammate Felipe Massa. (Images © Williams/Getty Images)
