Susie Wolff admits Williams test 'not official' yet

'It's not clear yet how many sets of tyres the team will have available, but I'm getting ready and I expect to drive' - Susie Wolff

Jul.8 (GMM) Susie Wolff has admitted she is likely to make her proper F1 circuit debut at Silverstone next week.

We reported at the weekend that the 30-year-old Scot will definitely appear in Williams' 2013 car during the three-day 'young driver' test.

"Yes, it's not official," Wolff, whose husband is the Mercedes director and Williams co-owner Toto Wolff, told German broadcaster Sky.

"It's not clear yet how many sets of tyres the team will have available, but I'm getting ready and I expect to drive -- at least one day," she added.

"I'm very happy, it's a big challenge and I'm ready. I'll do my best and hopefully that's enough," the former DTM driver said, adding that she has been strengthening her neck muscles so much that the result is now visible.

With Mercedes banned from the Silverstone test, Brackley-based Toto Wolff said at the weekend that he will attend simply to watch his wife at the wheel.
