    Susie Wolff ready for F1 cockpit?

    rumors are telling that we are going to see Susie already in this season in a F1 cockpit. I think it would be very stimulating to find a women in this so far men sport.  Also would be interesting to see how the colleagues are going to attack her in the field? In Hockenheim testing her times have been comparable to Massa - but we all know that testing times are worlds apart from real racing.

    Whats your opinion?


    Re: Susie Wolff ready for F1 cockpit?

    Sure. There's no reason a woman can't compete on equal footing in F1, if she's got the skill. And, it's not like the cars today require brute, "manly" force to get them around a track. (Although, it does require excellent conditioning, but she likely has that.)

    I doubt, were she to get a seat, that her competitors would hold back on her, and they'd attack her like anyone else. It's not like LH, NR or anyone else is going to wave her through turn 1 at a start.


    Re: Susie Wolff ready for F1 cockpit?

    IMO it would be good for the sport. Not to mention having "The first woman in F1" is going to be marketing gold bringing in new sponsors, new fans, and tons of new material that could add to the sport. 


    Re: Susie Wolff ready for F1 cockpit?

    Good for her!

    So what if she only got the repeated opportunities she has had because she married Toto Wolff? Some F1 drivers have blatantly bought their way into race seats (eg Petrov, Maldonado) ... others have got race seats because of the backing of wealthy sponsors ... Perez has backing from Carlos Slim ... so what if Toto Wolff owns an equity stake in Williams? Susie chose a good husband :)

    Another woman, Swiss, Simona de Silvestro , is 3 rd pilot at Sauber F1 . Rumours are that she is planed to become a driver . She is the daughter of my ex- local Porsche dealer and I have driven as a passenger with her in a GT2 when she was 16. I have never been with a faster driver kiss

    I hope she does not take many pictures like the one above. I have had enough of Danica Patrick trying to be sexy.  It has not place for a professional driver.  Keep your clothes on babe.  Hope she is quick enough she can do that.


    Re: Susie Wolff ready for F1 cockpit?

    Well, she has quite a history in the German Touring class championship (DTM) and I do not recall her being that quick - might have been that, usually, she had to drive past-season modells - if she is quick, then let her compete... 


    Re: Susie Wolff ready for F1 cockpit?

    IMO she should try to be respected for her driving ability not her imaginary sexiness.

    I only mostly agree on that. Of course F1 requires self marketing like any other job and sport. Especially in F1 its not enough anymore just being a good driver - the companies are investing way too much money, so you can be sure, they make sure to have an good looking idol they can use for marketing reasons. Check those guys we have in the mens F1 - Rossberg, Hamilton, Weber.... all are great drivers but also kind of cool guys - some would say kind of attractive, sexy. So - why shouldnt we have also great women drivers which are also sexy?

    And yes - I mostly agree because first you have to perform, second you have to have the look for it.

    Good point - would be so cool having both of them in the F1 next year. This would enlighten the sport!

    The perception of human beauty is very tied up with symmetry. So, it's not surprising that most top athletes are attractive since athletic ability is very likely correlated to symmetry as well.

    I prefer these photos of her but yes, I would love to see her in the F1. kiss

    See, it's this sort of attitude toward women that makes it necessary for people to go to supercardating.com to find Fine Living Companions.
