Susie Wolff will gain further experience in the Williams Martini Racing Team's FW37 following her test in Barcelona last month.

The Grove based outfit have just confirmed that as well as running an extensive development programme in their simulator, Wolff will also drive in Free Practice One for both the Spanish and British Grand Prix.

Wolff drove the FW36 at both the British and German Grand Prix last season and it is great to see her get further time with the race team in her expanded role as test driver at the Williams Martini Racing Team.

The news comes as Sir Frank Williams was on hand at the Barcelona Circuit de Catalunya to oversee the final day of winter testing before the cars head to Melbourne for the opening race of the season in less than two weeks time.

He saw one of his drivers Valtteri Bottas lead the way. The Finn completed 89 laps with a fastest time of 1m 23.063s.
