Williams Martini Racing Team test driver Susie Wolff have called on Formula One’s governing body, the FIA to rethink the new Super Licence criteria.

Under the new system which will be introduced from next season Wolff will not be eligible for an FIA Super Licence despite the fact that the Scot has completed over 1000KM for the Grove based outfit since 2012 due to the fact that she has not raced in other categories since racing in the DTM.

The new system also means that that Mercedes AMG PETRONAS F1 Team’s Pascal Wehrlein will also not be eligible for the Super Licence despite completing mileage in both a current Mercedes F1 car and Sahara Force India F1 car. Wolff was in action for the Williams Martini Racing Team on the opening day of last weeks’ Barcelona test.

Wolff has ruled out the possibility of competing in another racing category this season due to her current commitments with Williams Martini Racing but may race in other categories in the future.
