Susie Wolff race weekend debut ended in huge disappointment
Susie Wolff’s historic debut at the British Grand Prix ended in huge disappointment. She completed just one lap – which put her quickest out of three drivers at the time – before rolling to a stop her Williams following oil pressure problem.

“It was a really tough day but that’s Formula 1 sometimes. We had an oil pressure problem which cut the engines – the guys are looking at getting it fixed for free practice two. Wolff told BBC Sport.

“I want to say a huge thank you for all the support – it means a lot and really helps. It was wonderful. Going out there was the best feeling and although there’s been a lot of media around this run, once I had put the helmet on that was the best feeling, and as soon as I had left the pit lane, everything felt good. Unfortunately it was a short run but I’m going to look forward to Hockenheim.”

The 31-year-old Scot became the first woman to take part in a grand prix weekend in 22 years but her FW36 stopped on the second lap of her first run. Just a minutes afterwards, team-mate Felipe Massa lost control and hugely crashed into the wall.
